Steve Aoki is one of the most acclaimed and successful EDM musician/producers in history, and the place he makes his magic is a personal studio called the Neon Future Cave. Steve had already turned to Ocean Way Audio for a pair of customized HR3X monitors. Last week, he took delivery of another special pair of studio monitors with an Ocean Way Audio HR4S monitor system.
Steve wanted his new HR4S monitors to not only match the decor of his room in white with blue accents, but also asked for an extra level of customization to better inspire his work. We went to our friends at West Coast Customs, whose operations are close to us in Burbank, CA. They’re famous, of course, for their custom car designs, and have been featured on a number of TV series including Pimp My Ride, Street Customs and more. They did the custom finishing on the HR4S monitors and embellished the speakers with Aoki’s famous silhouette logo. West Coast Customs had previously done the customized finishing of Steve’s larger HR3X monitors, so the look was perfectly matched.

The Ocean Way Audio HR4 offers a proprietary 2-way compression-driven hybrid horn/waveguide system, and delivers an ultra-wide horizontal sweet-spot with rich detail across a broad area of the listening zone. It provides an unmatched ultra-wide 100-degree horizontal / 40-degree vertical dispersion, with a response from 35Hz to 25kHz. The main speakers are powered at 250 watts/side, with digital and analog inputs, accepting 24bit / 192kHz data streams. With the HR4S option, the system expands to include a pair of 800 watt/side 12” ported full-range subwoofers.
Many of Ocean Way Audio’s monitors for both professional audio and hi-fi are available with special and customized finish options. Contact us at 818-847-8757 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
