Ocean Way Audio is now delivering its new Pro2A, HR4 and HR4S near and mid-field audio monitors. The speakers offer a 100x40 degree dispersion pattern, allowing everyone in the control room to hear what the mixing engineer has created.
Ocean Way said the HR4 and HR4S have massively accurate sweet spots due to a dual/hybrid waveguide engineered using 3D modeling. It is cast in a stone-like resin.
HR4 series speakers are offered in a two and three-way configuration and are 25.5 wide. Starting at $6,000 a pair, these self-powering monitors can handle a wide range of professional audio applications.
The Ocean Way Pro2A, priced at $3,500 a pair, has a high frequency driver with a silk fabric dome design for excellent mechanical linearity. The low frequency driver has a geometrically reinforced aluminum cone with vented cast aluminum chassis yielding optimum strength and low compression.
The Pro2A has 250 watts per side amplification with digital and analog inputs, which accept 24 bit/192kHz data streams.

The need for good directivity in loudspeakers cannot be sufficiently emphasised and remains an area that speaker designers sometimes neglect. The result destroys acoustic realism and makes loudspeakers sound like loudspeakers instead of like the original sound.
One of the most frequent questions that audio manufacturers get is whether their engineering customers should mix sound on headphones or studio monitors. The answer is simple. High quality mixes can be achieved on either…or both.
