The Ocean Way Audio HR5 monitors redefine what is possible in a compact speaker, offering an unparalleled listening experience with a vast sweet spot, precise imaging, and natural sound reproduction. With advanced Ocean Way technology and efficient constant directivity horns, the HR5 stands as a testament to precision engineering and innovation in speaker design. Ideal for smaller rooms, these monitors deliver exceptional performance that surpasses expectations, making them a valuable addition to any studio or audio setup.
Perfect 100 Degrees of Horizontal Dispersion:
HR5 monitors provide an exceptional 100 degrees of horizontal dispersion, ensuring a consistent and balanced sound no matter where you are in the room.
Offers the largest sweet spot of any speaker system available, allowing multiple listeners to experience the same tonal qualities and balance.
Ocean Way Technology:
The HR5 incorporates Ocean Way's patented twin constant directivity HF and low-band horns, derived from the design used in Ocean Way Recording studios' 18 control rooms.
Achieves a remarkable + or - 1dB matching performance throughout the entire extended frequency range, providing superb imaging.
Efficient Constant Directivity Horns:
HF and mid-band constant directivity horns, milled out of solid nonresonant wood blocks, offer greater efficiency compared to conventional direct radiators.
Low distortion even at high volume levels, requiring half the power of conventional direct radiating components.
Natural Sound without Coloration:
The true constant directivity nature of the horns, along with unique driving elements and construction, results in a natural sound without any trace of harshness or coloration.
The HF section utilizes a 1-inch silk dome with an aluminum voice coil and a large magnetic structure for lower distortion.
Smooth Transition Between Ranges:
Each HF and LF component can deliver excellent performance above and below their crossover points, ensuring a smooth transition between all ranges.
Exact physical time alignment and horns with identical flare rates provide a virtually perfect transition between components.
Versatile Virtual Headphone Setup:
The HR5's exceptional performance allows for setting up a pair as virtual headphones while maintaining a perfect balance.
Unprecedented performance for its physical size and price range, offering unmatched versatility.
Clear and Defined Bass:
Despite its compact size, the HR5 delivers clear and defined bass down to 45Hz and below, a remarkable feat for a small speaker.
Features a high-performance 7-inch woofer with a light cone and aluminum voice coil.
The HR5 utilizes a bi-amped design with a 125-watt amp for the LF (Low-Frequency) driver and a separate 90-watt amp for the HF (High-Frequency) driver.
Ensures ample power for accurate and dynamic sound reproduction.
