CES 2017 LOOK BOOK
70 YEARS AGO THE GENESIS OF SOMETHING
VERY SPECIAL OCCURRED IN A TINY TIN SHED
IN HOPE, ARKANSAS
In 1946 Paul W. Klipsch – genius, madman and maverick – designed
and hand-built the legendary Klipschorn® loudspeaker with the goal
of bringing live music into his living room. He was an American audio
pioneer and a true eccentric. PWK gave rise to speaker technologies
that would forever impact generations of music lovers.
Today, in this honored tradition, we move forward, pushing the
boundaries of art and science – while driving new technologies to
deliver an ever-incredible listening experience.
Remember great sound? We never forgot.
We are the KEEPERS OF THE SOUND®

Back by popular demand, the Klipsch Forté III delivers
classic Heritage performance with new retro-cool

a punch while providing clear, multi-dimensional sound.
Forté’s narrow profile and clean lines harbor a wealth of
advanced acoustic technology. As the first truly fullrange speaker in the Heritage lineup, audiophiles will be
impressed by Forté’s highly-efficient horn loaded tweeter
and updated larger mid-range driver – both with new
titanium diaphragms for a smoother response. The slim
design houses a powerful 12” woofer and 15” passive
radiator for jaw-dropping tight, enveloping bass.
