Default LF: American DJ Powerbars

I ordered 4 of these from Long and McQuade in November and I went in on Friday they said maybe I would see them at the end of March. Anyone know where else to buy these? I see some on Amazon.ca for about $65 +shipping. At L&M they are $38. Any ideas??

I just ordered one of these a few days ago:

Same as the American DJ but different brand.

^ Awesome. I saw that one offered by a different company for around the $65 mark too (and $150 lol). I didn't see this vendor for cheaper. Thanks!

I have a Technical Pro PS9U bar that I bought and never ended up using.
Band new in box.
Willing to sell it for the $50 I paid for it.
Amazon one kills you with the shipping. $32.79 for bar and $20.30 for shipping.
Oooppss, Just noticed you were in Sakabush, sorry shipping kills it again.

Hey Dave, I was looking at that one too. Are the plugs on the backside far enough apart though? I seem to remember that one has close outlets.

I bought the last American DJ power bar last week at a local L+M, the sticker on the box said $31.50 so they honoured it
There are apparently 81 on order across Canada and was also told March. Did they make you pay up front? I was told I had to.

Thanks for the pic Dave. Yes, those outlets are pretty close - won't be able to plug any adapters into it without blocking the next outlet. I like the blue switched on it better than the red ones though.

Nice deal! Yes, they are all paid for.

You could just get 12" extension cords for those larger adapters...

Man, for the Amazon.ca price you could just build your own... In fact, that's what I'd do and what I've done in the past. I'd heavily consider it.

Other option is, if you don't live too far from the USA border, you can buy it on amazon.COM for a big discount and have it shipped to a mailbox on the other side. Go for a weeknd drive and pick it up. "Oh, but it's such a long drive and the gas would off set the cost!"... Sign up for a free trial of Amazon Prime, get free 2-day shipping, buy a year's supplies at 50% of what Amazon.ca would cost and your save yourself a bundle.

I'll qualify this by recognizing the dollar makes this a little less sweet these days...

That said, even with the state of the dollar I saved about 40% the other week when ordering from Amazon.com.
