Forte III with AHB2 and ADI-2 Pro FS R

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share a picture if my system. Got these Forte III Ebony edition and they are a killer upgrade to complete my system. These speakers sound crystal clean and have so much detail. They do give that live sound feel and with this amp the bass kicks hard. I listen to everything but love metal, metal sounds perfect here. Classical/80's Synth Club type music/Jazz it all sounds amazing to me.

Does anyone know if the veneer on these is real Ebony wood? It looks like it, they look stunning in person. They have a fine instrument level of detail and finish to them.

Thanks for checking it out!a5dd5af45b72ed1fb10ff5c458bf1aa4.jpg

I'm sure someone knows as a matter of fact, but a close up showing the grain would be nice.  Sweet system, I would recommend more separation between the speakers.

From the picture I found on the website, the grain looks like oak, with what they call an "ebony finish."  Inquiring minds want to know.

Thanks for the tip, not an ideal room but I do plan to experiment some more after I get more use to the sound.

After looking up oak from your suggestion it does look like that. That may well be what it is.

Looks like it, and a nice finish.  You should get many years of enjoyment.  I have had forte II's since 1989, and now have 3 pair.  They are a well balanced and versatile speaker, the only caveat is they will sound best with proper room placement.

Moved the speakers closer the corners of the room and the bass got deeper and punchier. Thanks for the advice. They sound incredible, I know haventhe Klipsch bug. I am torn on returning them for the Forte IV and am even thinking about Cornwall IV, my electronics are pairing nice. I believe they sound a bit broken in now but im not a huge beleiver in that, but man moving them closer to the corner made them so punchy. Im just so happy.3031a5d006aa81302bfdb8257860ab1f.jpg

Several here can tell you about the CW4, particularly @Shakeydeal.  Don't think you will see Forte IV anytime soon.  And if you don't mind a little hint.....you could use a nice big thick rug.  Will make a difference.

Some curtains on those windows wouldn’t hurt either.

Guys I cranked these, with some Blackened by Metallica. I was there at the concert, what a glorious experience. I want more, I think I need Cornwalls. These went loud and stayed crystal clean, the detail and texture never went away. It got just a hair boomy because I had them tuned for a lower volume, If I pull them from the corner they get less bass. They pair amazing with SS, I keep reading that you need a tube amp, I disagree, you need a cleat spounding well made amp. Anyways catch ya later.

No, but I am going to try it out sometime. I will likely get a local shop to make me one.

I have a friend who is demoing an AHB2 right now with a pair of focals. Says he loves it. I might have to give it a spin.
