The History of OCEANEARS...

O.E. ENTERPRISES (OCEAN ENGINEERING ENTERPRISES) is a small business that produces high quality “OCEANEARS” underwater loudspeakers, underwater speakers, synchronized swimming sound systems, hydrophones, acoustic diver recall systems and U.S. Navy approved diver signaling devices. We are located in North Canton, Ohio and are proud to say our equipment is MADE IN AMERICA!

Proudly Made in the USA

O.E. ENTERPRISES was founded in 1991 and has quickly become the WORLD LEADER in underwater speakers and sound systems. Company OWNER, Ed Harper, received his BACHELOR of SCIENCE Degree in Ocean Engineering from Florida Atlantic University in Boca Raton, Florida in 1977. Ed had been involved in developing and designing acoustic transducers for use in U.S. Navy Programs prior to starting O.E. ENTERPRISES in 1991.

O.E. ENTERPRISES manufactures synchronized swimming sound systems for the synchro community around the world. We have supplied underwater speakers to the RUSSIAN SYNCHRO FEDERATION for three FINA Junior Worlds Synchronized Swimming Championships.
