Forte 1 center channel

Recommended Posts

I am getting tired of waiting for another pair of walnut Forte I to come up that I can afford.   Seems their price has gone up since the release of Forte III!!!    Have seen quit a few Walnut KG4 that I could afford.     I will be replacing my current Oak KG2.2.   What are you feelings of a KG 4 between Crites updated Forte 1s.   I have Forte 1s also in place for the surrounds.   Thanks for your thoughts.

It would definitely be an upgrade over any KG2 speaker.  I love my KG4s.

Thanks Wuzzer.  I am sure there would be some tonal difference  between forte and KG4.   Any guess what frequencies would most express that difference?  I ask because my hearing is very poor in the upper registers,  and if that is where tonal differences would be most noticeable,  I might be OK with KG4.  I hear they have tight accurate bass and that is right down my ally.  Midrange is probably most import for the center any way.

The midrange of a forte should be a little clearer due to the squawker covering that portion of the audio.  However, the exponential horn in the KG4 should be a step up from the dhorn in the 2.2.

Thanks,  so I suppose the smart thing to do is to divide up the surround fortes and use one for the center.  I have 36" space under the TV so it can stand upright.  Use newly aquired KG4 for the surround speakers?  Just one lonely left over Forte1.

That would be perfect!  You shouldn't have a problem selling a single forte if you chose to.
