PreSonus Sceptre CoActual™ series studio reference monitors feature an advanced coaxial design that works integrally with a 32-bit, 96 kHz, dual-core processor that uses Fulcrum Acoustic's TQ™ Temporal Equalization technology. 

Spectre CoActual monitors deliver clarity and coherence that has previously only been available in ultra-high-end systems. Yet they are an affordable investment for project-studio owners—a first for DSP-controlled, TQ-based systems.

The Sceptre S8 CoActual Studio Monitor features combines an 8-inch low/mid-frequency driver and a 1.73-inch (44 mm), horn-loaded, high-frequency transducer into a single coaxial unit with aligned voice coils.  Both the S6 and the S8 have acoustic ports.

Sceptre monitors include controls that enable full integration into any studio environment.  A four-position Acoustic Space switch controls a second-order shelving filter center at 100 Hz, with four attenuation settings (no attenuation, -1.5 dB, -3 dB, and -6 dB) so that you can account for the bass response relative to room dimensions and speaker placement. 

A High Pass switch sets the second-order slope, 12 dB/octave filter’s low-frequency cutoff to linear, 60 Hz, 80 Hz, or 100 Hz.  A High-Frequency Driver Adjust switch adjusts the tweeter's overall level to linear (0 dB), +1 dB, -1.5 dB, or -4 dB.  The Sensitivity control ranges from +4 dBu to -10 dBV.

The systems are biamplified: Each transducer is powered by a 90W RMS, Class D power amp with an internal heat sink.  All Sceptre-series monitors have a balanced XLR and 1/4" TRS line-level inputs with A-taper level control.

All Sceptre-series monitors offer RF shielding, current-output limiting, and over-temperature protection and have internal power supplies with IEC connectors and power switches with on/off LEDs.  An amplifier "soft start" feature eliminates popping on power-up.
