  1. Our deepest condolences to Ritchie Smith aka Nitrofan on the very sudden passing of his wife Barb. Barb was an avid Klipsch fan and wholeheartedly supported Richie’s love of Klipsch. Barb grew up In Springhill, AR so she was very familiar with the Klipsch brand. Barb will be missed by all who knew and loved her, including her husband, children and grandchildren. Barb, you will be missed at future Klipsch events. May you Rest In Peace by sweet friend. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I hope to speak with her today. Ron, Dave’s longtime friend aka Lonelobo is putting us in touch. Things are very fluid so I have been speaking to Ron. I lost Kecia’s number when my last phone died. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. As of yesterday no definite arrangements have been made. As soon as I am notified of arrangements I will post comment here. My friendship with Dave dates back 16 years. I met him at a Pilgrimage within weeks of his daughter, Jennings passing. We bonded instantly and became close friends. I can not express how much I will miss him. With all of his oddities, he was truly an honorable, loving, compassionate man. I know from our many conversations that Dave is now with the Great Physician and his suffering is over.

  10. It’s pretty clear that JEM is a Klipsch authorized service center. Klipsch recommends you use them for your servicing needs. I believe the link to JEM is posted above. Please feel free to PM me should you need additional info. Christy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. My thoughts and prayers are with you, the boys and all who knew and loved him. I’m so glad I got to spend some time talking to him a few weeks ago. He was an incredible human being. He will be missed. Christy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I feel this way very often, especially when called upon to handle matters like this for our Klipsch friends. So many people we’ve met and grown very fond of...seeing them once or twice a year. I’m honored to call each of you my friend. Losses like this are difficult at best. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Interesting story from his sister: Sitting in Kirby’s pandemic office and remembering all that he was. Just want to give a little insight. When the pandemic hit he moved from a highrise in downtown Dallas to his garage. His obsession with Klipsch speakers started in high school , and upon graduation from college they wanted to hire him. Kirby didn’t want to move to Hope, but that didn’t stop his love. When he wanted to begin teaching his boys about money he did it through the buying and selling of speakers. He has been all over the country and sent everyone he knows scouting for speakers. Stephanie finally put her foot down and moved him to the garage, with only a few left in the house. He was always trying to gift everyone with a set of Klipsch speakers. So the man cave began as he continued to teach his boys about music and finances. During this last year he conducted business all over the US from this space always making time to jam for awhile in between. I thought it was perfect for Stephanie to suggest donations to the Klipsch Museum. This garage tells a lot about many things that brought him joy. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
