Web Site Updates

This page will hold various information about updates to the website

Update 1-9-2022

I have done an extensive rearranging of the pages on the site as well as some pricng updates due to shipping and part costs that came up with the new year. 

Update 10-27-2021

Today I have opened up Canada and many EU countries as well as the UK and Ireland for purchases on our web store.Update 10-4-2021

After 19 years, my cedar board supplier has let me know that he is retiring. Until I am able to find a new supplier, I will have to transition my crossovers to the same high quality birch plywood that we use to build our speakers. I will be updating pictures on the website as I am able to take new pictures.

Update 9-15-2021

Today I am adding new functionality to the site in the way of an online shopping page. For now, this can best be considered “beta”, and is open only to US customers. As it is new and beta there may be some growing pains as I get it set up. Presently, I do not have it set to combine items into shipments so if you need multiple items, please still contact me so I can calcuate the best shipping rates for you. International customers also still need to contact me to place orders. US customers can access the store here.

Please let me know if you run into any issues so I can get them addressed.

Update 9-9-2021

Today we are adding some new items to the site! I realize with the recent pricing increase for Sonicaps that it pushed those crossover rebuilds and new crossover parts out of some budgets. I have worked out a supply of Dayton 1% capacitors to allow me to add a lower cost rebuild kit option for most of the crossovers. While I feel that the Sonicaps are a good value for a long lasting cap, these Dayton caps are still superior to the old and worn out caps in crossovers over 20 years old and will get the crossover back into spec. For labeling efficiency, I will be calling rebuild kits with Sonicaps “Series 1” and rebuild kits with Dayton “Series 2”. Please see the kit pricing here: Crossover Rebuild Kits

Update 8-11-2021

Also, please be sure to check out our page about our in-house speaker designs! We have info back up for our CS-1t, and CS-1.5t as well as colsolidated the other speaker design pages into one place to find our Crites Speaker Style A, B, C, and D as well as our CSC-1 Center Channel. Read more about these speakers here: Crites Speakers

Update 7-30-2021

I have removed the previous updates about the phone to declutter this page a bit. Our phones are in working status. Please be aware that, at this time, I am the only one here to answer the phone so if you call and miss me, please leave a voice mail and I will return it as soon as possible Please speak clearly and carefully, especially with your return phone number. I do not have caller ID so I will not be able to return the call if I cannot catch your number in the voicemail. Email is also a great way to catch me - critessales@gmail.com

Other important notes: As you may be aware with the ongoing pandemic, supplies of parts are running low, transportation is crazy, and the effects of inflation on the US Dollar are starting to be felt more and more. Recently, my capacitor price costs doubled or more and that necessitated an adjustment to pricing. The plywood that we use to build speaker cabinets climbed in price along with other building materials. I have no way, right now, to know for certain if other pricing or supply issues will be affecting us. I am doing my best to buy ahead and keep things in inventory and to keep pricing as low as possible.

We have some new products finally in the pipeline and some further streamlining of the website to do, so check back.

Update 4-10-2021

I want to thank everyone for the kind words and condolences that have been offered to us over the last few months! We are catching up on projects and are finding our “new normal”. We are still open for business and ready to help you out if you have a need. Over the next few weeks, I will be making some updates to the site to clarity some information and add some new products that we are excited to make available as well as introducing our readers/fans to the rest of the staff here.

Update 1-18-2021

We are greatly saddened to announce the death of Bob Crites. Bob was an amazing husband, father and grandfather and he will be sorely missed. He loved music and sound reproduction and thoroughly enjoyed helping people make great speakers even better. His legacy here will be carried on and we will continue to offer the same great products and services to the audio community.

Please bear with us in the next little while as we finalize his arrangements and take care of some important business things. For the next couple of weeks, we may be out of the office a bit while we are handling these affairs. Feel free to email and we will respond as soon as possible.
