ABOUT PK SOUND:

PK Sound is an owner-operated advanced loudspeaker manufacturer proudly headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and servicing the world. We pride ourselves on being a fresh alternative to the status quo, providing creative and innovative solutions in an ever-evolving marketplace. It is one thing to hear music; it is another to experience it. PK Sound was born out of the marriage of acoustic engineering and human emotion in facilitation of the connection between artist and fan.

There is no doubt we work hard, but we have a lot of fun doing it and share in our success.
