Refurbished - Sceptre S8 *

Product Details

  • CoActual technology combines DSP time-correction and point-source design for symmetrical soundstage and micro-definition imaging
  • Unique coaxial transducer integrates 8-inch midrange driver and 1-inch (25 mm) horn-loaded HF transducer with Coaxial Speaker Coherence Alignment
  • 32-bit, 96 kHz, dual-core, active floating-point DSP provides critical Temporal Equalization™ with multiple FIR filters
  • Acoustic-tuning controls: HF Driver Adjust (0 dB, +1 dB, -1.5 dB, -4 dB), Acoustic Space (0 dB, -1.5 dB, -3 dB, -6 dB), high-pass filter (Off, 60 Hz, 80 Hz, and 100 Hz, -12 dB/octave slope), Sensitivity (+4 dBu to -10 dBV)
  • 180W RMS, Class D biamplification with internal heat sink
  • RF shielding, current-output limiting, and over-temperature protection

The Sceptre S8 two-way monitor combines an 8-inch low/mid-frequency driver and a 1-inch (25 mm), horn-loaded, high-frequency transducer into a single coaxial unit with aligned voice coils. Its advanced coaxial design, based on Fulcrum Acoustic’s TQ™ Temporal Equalization, works integrally with a 32-bit, 96 kHz, dual-core processor to deliver clarity and coherence that has previously only been available in ultra-high-end systems. Add 180 watt, Class D biamplification; acoustic ports; a rich set of acoustic adjustments; and full speaker protection; and you have a new, affordable monitoring standard.
