So I recently upgraded my Klipsch RP-150M bookshelf speakers that I had for about 3 years to the Forte III’s in my audio setup a few days ago. Wow...all I have to say, biggest improvement I have seen so far! I have been experimenting with placement, currently have them about 12-13inches from the back wall in my apt., slight toe-in and 6-7 feet apart. They are about 13 feet from main listening position. Sounding pretty good but does anyone have any recommendations for me to improve the sound more? Also I have heard that these speakers need time to break in to sound their best, is this true? Any and all comments are appreciated!👍🏻 - Matt
Went to the Montreal Audio show last night specifically to listen to what Klipsch had there. They had a pair of ForteIIs! Just wow! Very well balanced, gorgeous cabinet. Perfect imaging. (and that is what I went for) The only thing was that considering the size and market share of the company, they could have had a bigger room with more wow factor to really show them off, considering they where the cheapest of the lot that I liked.. The local shop is not that big. The other makes that struck me in a positive way where the Yamaha NS5000s, $20,000 Paridigm Persona $30,000 and Muraudio $14000(made in Ottawa!) electrostatics. Source material makes a huge impact though, maybe other demos where just not my type of music. Lots of $5000 power cables too! Oh boy. try getting into a conversation with the reps on those types of products.. Lots of BS and real anger when you ask good questions. The same sort of response when you ask CAM people about reiki and homeopathy... its all woo.. and lots of Quantum Energy Fields!
