About Ocean Way Audio (OWA)
OWA speakers deliver the sound of Ocean Way. Products include the Hi-Res series – self-powered monitors that offer an integrated dual-horn design, providing an exceptionally accurate monitoring experience. The geometrically-complex waveguide creates accurately matched, detailed imaging with a wide horizontal and vertical sweet-spot, yielding a stunning 100x40 degree dispersion pattern. The consistency of OWA monitors' stereo imaging is due to the highly consistent directivity response of the speaker. Models include the HR4 (2-Way), HR4S (3-Way), and HR3.5 (3-way with twin 12-inch sub-bass drivers per channel). Self-powered Pro2A speakers are modeled after our award-winning HiFi designs, voiced for professional applications and offering superb high-frequency response with exceptionally low bass.
