I'm not sure why you are dead set on PG equipment but if its what you prefer .

One place to buy PG is Urban Audio Video in West Edmonton Mall (near the ice rink when you are heading from Bourbon Street if I remember correctly). Also on Argyl Trail, between 75th street and 99th street there is an audio video place on the north side of the road that should sell PG.

Any ex international stereo outlet (as the 2 mentioned above) should carry PG as they are still run exactly the same with the same staff (as far as I can tell). The staff are still pushy and don't know much at all. All they will do is tell you "this is definitely what you need". If you are going to shop there, do your research and decide what you want/need before you go. Also try to bargain with them as they will deal with you a little bit (they did for my brother).

Sorry to anyone on this forum who may work/has worked for international stereo. I have had nothing but annoyances with them and for that reason have refused to buy anything from them for quite some time.


You may also want to check out Exile audio as they were designed by some of the same engineers as PG.

Reliability has been a sore spot for PG for years now. And except for the Ti Elite products they really haven't had much to offer as the other lines have been full of mediocre products that can't compete with one's in the same price point from other companies.
Titanium series subs can be had for cheap these days because they are quite "average" and unless you're getting them for $35 each on Ebay a better driver can be had for what any dealer is going to sell them at. Immediate competition at their price point would be the Alpine Type R and the Kicker CompVR which are both much better performing drivers.

If that doesn't explain PG's reliability???

In the 90's PG made some really really nice high end stuff. Now they're living off the name they made years ago in my opinion.

I used to have some PG before it was stolen. Old school stuff was great. If you are looking for a more 'personal' approach, Lasertech Audio in Leduc sold PG last time I was there...
