The Ocean Way Audio HR4 Reference Monitor offers an unparalleled listening experience in recording studio environments. With its advanced dual/hybrid waveguide system, high-definition drivers, and exceptional dispersion characteristics, the HR4 sets a new standard for accuracy and clarity in reference monitoring. Whether used in stereo configurations or as part of a 3-Way system, the HR4 is designed to meet the demands of discerning audio professionals and studios.
Advanced Acoustic Design:
The HR4 Reference Monitor is a 24” integrated 2-way dual-horn system designed for accuracy and wide dynamic range in recording studio environments.
Features Ocean Way Audio's proprietary dual/hybrid waveguide system, created with high-grade 3D solid modeling for geometrically-complex surfaces.
Wide Dispersion and Sweet Spot:
Delivers an ultra-wide 100×40 degree dispersion pattern, providing an unusually wide horizontal sweet spot.
Rich detail is maintained across a broad area of the listening environment, ensuring a consistent stereo image even in distant corners.
Exceptional Stereo Imaging:
The highly consistent directivity response of the speaker system ensures a consistent stereo image, contributing to accurate and detailed imaging.
Geometrically-complex surfaces enhance imaging precision, offering an immersive listening experience.
HF (High-Frequency) driver is a high-definition design with excellent mechanical linearity, contributing to precise high-frequency reproduction.
LF (Low-Frequency) driver is a geometrically reinforced 8” aluminum cone within a ported cabinet, yielding optimum strength and low compression.
Seamless Driver Integration:
The two-way, self-powered design achieves seamless integration between the HF and LF drivers, providing a matched uniform frequency response from 35 Hz to 22 kHz.
Impressive Low-Frequency Response:
Despite its minimal footprint, the HR4 exhibits an exceptional low-frequency response, eliminating the need for a subwoofer in standard configurations.
Offers a frequency range of 35 Hz to 22 kHz, ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the audible spectrum.
High-Resolution Audio Support:
Capable of handling both analog and digital inputs, accepting 24-bit / 192kHz data streams for high-resolution audio playback.
Ensures precision and clarity in reproducing audio details.
Each channel is powered by 250 watts, providing ample power for accurate and dynamic sound reproduction.
The digital and analog inputs are complemented by the capability to accept 24-bit / 192kHz data streams.
3-Way Option for Enhanced Power:
An optional 3-Way model is available, featuring a pair of 700-watt/side 12” ported subwoofers for those seeking even greater power and low-frequency performance.
