Every review wets themselves over these speakers and compares them to speakers costing as much as a used Honda accord.

Where did you find this? Your URL shows the special pricing but if you search for the Fortes on Adorama normally they show up regular price. Any other Klipsch heritage speakers on sale? Thanks.

Old technologies. I'll wait for reference premiere
why does it matter? as long as it sounds great. when it comes to speakers/headphones, old tech is good tech. electrostartic headphones/speakers been around since 50s, for example

I wonder how these compare to a Cerwin Vega AT-15. Specs suggest these handle less power. I'd love to hear them, but that's probably never going to happen.

You aren't gonna put more than a few watts of power into either of these speakers with how high their efficiency is. More watts doesn't mean it's better.

What? Heritage is better than reference premiere by a long shot

But it's a good start. Other specs as provided by CV are better such as frequency response and sensitivity. Not to say CV has the best track record with spec honesty.

I would bet that these Klipsch are actually far better speakers, I was just saying it would be interesting to compare them in-person. Some people say bad things about CV. And I hear some of the same things about Klipsch.

I think considering inflation, these Klipsch are about twice the price of what the CVs MSRP for a pair was back in the 90s, and what their cash value is today. So the Klipsch are 4x as valuable, dollar-wise.

You ordered some? I want to as well. How can I pass on this price?! Just want to make sure they are a matching pair before I place an order...
