For those craving a bit more heft and depth in their audio, the FORUS 5 offers a richer sound profile with enhanced bass, while maintaining the series’ hallmark acoustic quality. Additionally, the FORUS series includes sleek WALL models specifically crafted for unobtrusive wall mounting, perfect for space-saving without sacrificing sound.

The speaker’s front plate boasts a polished lacquer finish, presenting an aesthetic appeal when used without the fabric front. This design cleverly conceals any mounting holes, as the fabric frame attaches magnetically. A selection of sophisticated finishes for the cabinet ensures the speakers blend seamlessly with your decor.

These speakers integrate seamlessly with traditional stereo or surround systems, as well as with compact streaming systems from brands like Bluesound, Denon, or Sonos.

For an added bass boost, pairing with a dedicated subwoofer, such as one from Argon Audio’s lineup, is recommended.
