Full DescriptionView Full Description
The Sceptre S8 CoActual Studio Monitor combines an 8-inch low/mid frequency driver and a 1-inch horn-loaded, high-frequency transducer into a single coaxial unit with aligned voice coils and front-firing acoustic ports.
The first time you hear Sceptre-series CoActual 2-Way studio monitors, you'll discover fine nuances of your music that can't be reproduced by conventional designs.
The Sceptre's panoramic soundstage, fine detail and stunning dynamics will astonish you. This exceptional performance is the result of an advanced coaxial design that works integrally with a 32-bit processor running Fulcrum Acoustic's TQ Temporal Equalisation Technology. The processor is used to manage horn reflection, linear time and amplitude anomalies correction, performance contouring and dynamic excursion limiting.
PreSonus CoActual technology is at the heart of every Sceptre-series studio monitor and a combination of custom transducers in a state-of-the-art coaxial design with heavy-duty DSP running TQ algorithms.
In addition to making possible the Sceptre's coaxial design, the monitor's onboard DSP provides user-adjustable contour features for optimising the monitors for your mixing space. This enables full integration into any studio environment.

Please note that this extended warranty is currently only available on products sold within the EU or EEA, and is subject to the terms and conditions as detailed on the extended warranty certificate provided.
For customers in outlying areas of the country, the price of the Extended Warranty may be marginally higher, due to the potential for higher collection and redelivery transport costs.

No statement or condition of sale contained within these terms affects or restricts your statutory rights as defined under the Consumer Contracts Regulation 2014.
