But first, we listen! Here I've put my stock Forte IIIs into Danny's system. We're using my First Watt amp since I want to get it closer to what I use/hear at home:
I'll say this - the Forte III is definitely the best sounding speaker in the entire Klipsch lineup, IMO. Putting them into Danny's system showed that they sound better than the measurements taking at Stereophile would indicate. In fact, they sounded pretty good! There were a few odd things where they fell apart or got boomy or got harsh, but those were passing moments for the most part. So, right off the bat, it's clear this speaker "has good bones", and is going to be a good platform to do some upgrades on.
