I just seen this and I too am sad to learn of Bob's passing.

I had the pleasure of dealing with him on several occasions over these 15 or so years I have been a forum member.

Always very helpful and courteous. Possessed a great deal of knowledge.  Seemed eager to help and willing to guide in the right direction if I was unsure of what path to follow during the few repairs and replacements of these Klipsch speakers components.

RIP BOB!

like what Has already been said, you will be missed.

Oh man, just reading about this now. Did business with him on a few occasions and I was always satisfied. Good thoughts to his family. He will be missed by the audio community.

I'm so saddened to hear this news. I met Bob once years ago when I took my Klipsch Forte 2's to him to have them rebuilt. He and his sons were so cordial to me. Bob had me sit down and listen to his pair of Jubilee's while his son's tore into my speakers. They rebuilt the crossovers and installed the titanium inserts in the tweeter in one speaker and left the other stock. They then played the speakers for me and switched back and forth between them.....said if I didn't like the difference they'd put it back to stock. Man, that's some wonderful service rarely seen these days. Many of us will miss Bob so very much.

OMG. I can't believe I missed this. So sad. RIP BEC. Bob has helped me on an unquantifiable level, directly or indirectly, more than almost anyone else on this website. I wish his family well and hope they choose to continue his legacy, but we certainly all have lost a truly irreplaceable man.

This is very sad news.  I've never met Bob but did send some business his way and he subsequently sent his high value services my way.  This is a huge loss to the Klipsch community.  Condolences to his family.

Just saw this.

Sad news.

He was a pleasure to talk with and do bussiness with.

I rebuilt several speakers and crossovers using his products.

Condolences to his family.

God wanted to upgrade his Klipschorns, so he called Mr. Crites, on the insisting recommendations of a certain Mr.PWK...

 

Thank you again Mr Crites for your useful help and top notch products when, in the early 2000s, I built my DIY Cornwall enclosures :

I spoke to Bob on a number of occasions over the years.  He was a very helpful, down-to-earth individual.  He will be missed.
