The Sceptre S8 Two-Way 8" CoActual Studio Monitor with DSP Temporal Equalization by PreSonus articulates nuances of your music that can't be reproduced by conventional designs. The Sceptre S8 features a panoramic soundstage and a wide dynamic range. The advanced coaxial design works integrally with a 32-bit/96 kHz, dual-core processor running Fulcrum Acoustic's TQ Temporal Equalization Technology.
The Sceptre S8 features a 8" low/mid-frequency driver, a 1" horn-loaded tweeter and front-firing acoustic ports. The systems are biamplified, with each transducer powered by an independent 100W RMS, Class D power amplifier with an internal heat sink. Sceptre has an internal power supply and a blue power-indicator LED. The S8 studio monitor has a balanced XLR and a 1/4" TRS line-level input with an A-taper level control.
Coaxial systems, such as the S8, have both drivers on the same axis- providing a single point source for a consistent acoustic center. This results in symmetry of response on both the horizontal and vertical axes, at any given angle. The crossover transition is, therefore, seamless at all angles.
