The Sceptre S6 features a 6.5 inch mid and low frequency transducer with a 1 inch titanium tweeter, while the S8 features an 8 inch mid and low frequency transducer with the same 1 inch tweeter. Both systems are biamped using identical 90 watt class D amps for high and low drivers.
The trick to the Sceptre series that make it different from other coax monitors is the built-in DSP designed by Fulcrum Acoustics (well-known in the acoustics community for their excellent design abilities) that manages everything from horn reflection to dynamic and excursion limiting.
I heard pre-release versions of the Sceptres when I visited the PreSonus factory in June and I really loved them. I haven't used them to mix yet, but just a cursory listen really made me anxious to try them in the field.
The PreSonus Sceptre S6 has a street price of $649 each, while the S8 is priced at $749 each. Check out the video below for more info.
