Astonishing AccuracyThe PreSonus Sceptre S8 studio monitors feature a three-dimensional soundstage which has been incredibly well received by some of the most demanding engineers in the audio industry. Their unique design offers natural and true sound reproduction, displaying even the smallest of subtle nuances in recordings that you can’t hear in other monitors. This design gives you finely detailed panoramic imaging with transient response, and incredible dynamics, proving the Spectre S8 to be a fantastic all round studio monitor.

Amazing Features • Combines DSP time-correction and point-source design for symmetrical soundstage and micro-definition imaging
• Powerful DSP provides critical Temporal Equalization™ with multiple FIR filters
• RF shielding, current-output limiting, and over-temperature protection
• Amplifier “soft start” feature eliminates popping on power-up
• 180W RMS, Class D biamplification with internal heat sink

The CoActual® Difference


Hear Every DetailThe single point source produced by coaxial designs gives the monitor unique advantages, due to their consistent acoustic center and symmetrical dispersion pattern.

The proprietary CoActual technology in the Sceptre S8 studio monitor requires custom coaxial drivers and advanced onboard DSP for a seamless crossover transition and an even frequency response. The net result is incredible 3D imaging and a natural listening experience that projects even the finest of audio details.

Symmetric Response

symmetric response

Rich In ClarityWith a conventional two-way studio monitor design that puts the high-frequency driver directly above the low-frequency driver, where you’re listening from is incredibly important to hearing the audio accurately. Due to its coaxial speaker design, the frequency response of the Sceptre S6 studio monitor is symmetrical when placed horizontally or vertically.

When used with Fulcrum Acoustics Temporal Equalization algorithms, you get a cleaner stereo image, greater soundstage depth, additional separation between components in a complex mix, and a more enjoyable listening experience.

Accurate Transient Reproduction

Clean, Clear & ConsistentConsonant sounds in speech, percussion, attack and decay of musical instruments are all transient signals. Transients are made up of complex combinations of many frequencies. The phase relationships of these separate harmonics are a vital part of the characteristics and of the instrument or voice.

When they are reproduced accurately, you get sonic transparency, definition, and intelligibility. By keeping the transient reproduction consistent, even at high volumes, CoActual speakers reduce distortion and create clean, clear, consistent audio at any SPL level.

Monitors You Can Customize

Redefined AccuracySceptre-series studio monitors include additional user-adjustable contour features that allow you to adjust the monitors for your mixing area. This gives you complete integration into any studio environment. A four-position Acoustic Space switch helps to manage the bass increase that happens when the monitor is placed near a wall. A high-frequency driver level control helps to further compensate for room anomalies.

An onboard highpass filter makes it easy to add a Temblor® or a subwoofer into your monitor setup. The unique design of Sceptre S6 CoActual studio monitors provide unmatched lifelike sonic reproduction with three-dimensional soundstage. Their ability to accurately reproduce transients and smooth frequency response will display fine nuances that provide for a truly honest listening experience.
