Crites 1526C Woofers

The Crites 1526C Cast-Frame Woofers are used to replace the Klipsch K33 woofer in all applications.  The difference in sound quality between the original Klipsch K-33 woofers and the Crites is not significant, but the Crites woofers do seem to be a bit more efficient, and therefore will produce slightly more bass and slightly deeper bass.

As I said, the difference is very slight, but in my own Khorns, the difference was noticeably deeper and louder bass.  The way I look at it, the cost is so reasonable, especially if you consider the net after selling the original K33's, that changing from K33's to the Crites seems worth it to me, even if for just a slight improvement.   In my own system, any little bit more bass I could get from the Khorns was appreciated.

These do require a break-in period to notice a difference.  In fact, when I first installed them in my Khorns, they didn't sound as good as the original drivers, but after five or ten hours of using them, the sound became deeper and noticeably louder than the original.
