  1. I've heard this setup and it is fantastic! Great seller too. Someone should get these quick!

  3. An 8" subwoofer isn't going to match the bass of the Fortes...the radiating area of an 8" woofer is 50.24, where the fortes are 226.08 with the two speakers and 12" woofers (452.16 with the addition of the passive radiator.) True bass requires massive air movements, and an 8" sub isn't going to do it. What you'll get is more distortion and the illusion of bass as it makes additional distortions in the 60hz-ish range, making you think there is more bass.
  4. Buyer stopped responding and did not show...subwoofer still available.

    I, too, transitioned to 3.1 from a surround setup. It's still exciting and sound great for movies, but I'm way more interested in music and getting that right.
  6. Depends on the room. If I were to place speakers symmetrically in my room, you'd have a heavy left side tilt to the sound due to a large opening on the right side of the room. It's about balancing the acoustics depending on what your surroundings are.
  7. $1200 is a bit high, but it depends where you're located. I sold a pair for $800 and they are routinely selling for around $1,000 in the CT area.
  8. RF-7 III SOLD. Subwoofer still available.
  9. Sale pending on the RF-7 III
  10. R-112SW black RF-7 III : SOLD R-112SW: SOLD Both in excellent condition with no dings, dents, or scratches. RF-7 III come with all original packaging. Local pickup located in Terryville, CT Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. The argument for smaller drivers delivering more punch is just not true. A well designed 15" will be better than an equally designed 12". A larger cone area can be lighter, therefore more efficient, having less distortion and the ability to move more air. Smaller drivers must be heavier to have the same amount of punch or low-end reach of a larger driver. Find yourself a really well designed 18" woofer and you won't ever say a 6,8,12, etc. has more punch.

    They've got the mumps!
  13. I've owned both and currently have the Forte III. The Forte III will blow the Forte I out of the water. Better midrange, better bass, more detailed highs. It really is a completely different speaker.
  14. If everyone waits a year or two to buy used...there will be no used speakers to have. Someone has to buy new to keep Klipsch going - they don't make any money from used.
  15. What do you mean? The rubber washers are for shipping purposes. The grills are easily removed without them.
  16. GLWS! I've got a pair and they are amazing speakers.
  17. JBL is bringing back a couple vintage speakers. ...they will have a tough time coming up with new designs (at least for their synthesis line) since they fired all their top engineers that had been there for 40+ years. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Good description of efficiency vs sensitivity in that link. However...not sure I'd put too much trust in his ability to determine sound quality: "There is no connection between the efficiency and the sound quality." ...I think there was this guy who said efficiency is inversely proportional to distortion. I wonder if he ever made any speakers we enjoy... :-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. ...not a good deal you can get them brand new for $2200ish delivered.
  20. Nope! My Forte III have that covered. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. 5.5ft is a bit close to a speaker of this size with the drivers as far apart as they are. You may be able to tell where the crossover point is sitting that close which may make it sound like it's coming from multiple drivers rather than a single source. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  22. Why I have both? I love music and like different systems. The fortes and 7s aren't my only speakers... I listen to quite literally every genre. The fortes are better for 2-channel. I prefer the 7s for movies. Their height and outright power make them great for that. The 7s also have a matching center. The fortes midrange is much more pronounced and I feel better for most music. If you prefer heavy bass music, the 7s may be better due to their enormous slam. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Agreed. I've got a pair but I'm not about to start taking them apart. I only do that when I have to. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. By far. The whole speaker is fantastic but the midrange is astonishing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
