RF 7 III vs. Forte IV

Where are you located? Any opportunities to demo? I've demoed the Forte IV next to the Cornwall IV and preferred the Cornwall IV -- my local dealer has both. The room was, however, larger so that is a consideration. CW to me seemed to perform quite effortlessly. Price as always, is a consideration. I own Forte III and Chorus II. Have not heard RF7 line.

Not the paticular advise you are looking for but I have the Forte 1's and RF7 1's (both recapped) and for my type of music, classic rock and heavy metal, I prefer the Forte's mainly due to the 3-way design.

 

The RF7's perform very well with my home theater setup (RF-7, RC-7, RS-7 with an SVS PB12+2 sub).

 

Both speakers dig really deep and can play at concert volume levels in my room.

So much to wife's dismay, I decided to go with the Cornwall IVs. Picking them up this weekend. I did have a concern about placement of them in my room. The room is on the small side and was going to place them in corners about 10 feet apart with them slightly toed in towards listening area. How far do you think they should be from the back wall? I will also be driving them with a Rotel RA1592 MKII and was wondering if you think it would be beneficial to bi-wire these? Thanks again for your feedback!

In my experience, bi-wiring is a waste of time.  Bi-amping on the other hand is worthwhile if you have the means to do so.
