I would like to announce the arrival of my new grandson, Levi Dain Crites. He was born at 9:32 PM on Dec 4, 2012, weighing in at 7 pounds 12 oz. Baby Levi, mom Amy and dad Michael Crites are all doing fine.
Proud Dad, Michael Crites with Levi Crites

A couple of new pictures of Levi. He is now 1 month and one week old and doing great!
Levi is now about 3 1/2 months old. Growing like a weed!
B & K Enterprises is a small family owned company located in the Gumlog community near Russellville, Arkansas.
The B & K Sound division of B & K Enterprises provides personalized service for your Klipsch speakers. We can service and repair most of the drivers and crossovers. We also have some of our own products that are replacements for the original Klipsch parts.
We can either perform the repairs at our shop, or, if you are a DIY type, we can provide the parts for you to use.
Today we did final testing on a new speaker. This will be for use as a center channel.
Lots of people have asked us to develop a replacement woofer for the K-23 and K-25 in the Forte and Forte II. We are happy to announce that the CW-1230 woofers are in stock and ready to ship. We expect to find more uses for this new 12 inch 4 ohm woofer in our upcoming products.
The Cornwall Cornscala risers are in stock now.
We have been asked to make some risers that would fit a Cornwall or our Cornscala Style A through D cabinets.
People have asked us if we could make some slant risers for the Heresy speakers like were, at one time, offered by Klipsch. We have them now. They are ready to ship. MORE INFO
We often are asked how to determine the age of Klipsch speakers. The following chart may help.
