Nice setup.  Gotta love the combo of the Forte II's and the Scott...

 

Just wondering though, considering the rear passive on the Forte's, how does the acoustic treatment behind them affect the bass response?

The panels were actually installed for a different speaker, but when the Fortes are rotated into this room, I don't really notice any ill effects from leaving them in place. To be fair, though, I never listened to them in this room without the panels. In summary, I have no idea what affect they have on bass response lol! 

 

I do love the bass from these though. All in all, these are a very fun speaker that are right at home playing late night jazz, or rocking out. Very versatile and affordable at this price point, imho.

I would think panels behind the speaker would be of benefit in blocking some wall reflections and speaker boundary interference.  An asymmetric surface is good.  They won't hurt anything IMHO.

Great speakers, one of my favorites and in walnut too.

I grew up in in the Franklin, PA area.

When I need to downsize, the Forte i/ii will stay in my collection.

Good luck with the sale.

Very well done ad page.  Great quality pics and The Brother in Arms video sounded really nice on my Senns.
