SCEPTRE-S8

Online

Symmetric response. With a conventional two-way design that places the high-frequency driver directly above the low-frequency driver, where you are listening is critical to how well you will hear the audio. By contrast, the Sceptre S8's frequency response is symmetrical horizontally and vertically, thanks to its coaxial design. When coupled with Fulcrum Acoustics Temporal Equalization algorithms, the result is a crisper stereo image, greater soundstage depth, more separation between components in a complex mix, and a less fatiguing listening experience.

Did the research but was never able to actually hear the monitors until I purchased and installed them in the studio. I also added the Temblor T10 Sub to the setup as well. And the results?... Pretty much creepy. Very clear and punchy when required. Crisp and accurate detail if you know what you should be hearing. There are certainly monitors out there that are priced much higher that deliver similar or even less performance. If you are thinking about going with a pair of these, don't think too much more. They are very capable of doing the job.

After setting up and going through a learning curve of Z plane, these have been a Joy to mix with. Now there is one thing - until I added the Temblor 10 inch Subwoofer I did not know how much better things could sound. I switched the sub woofer off and on with the foot switch that comes with the subwoofer. Wow! what a significant change for the better. Reminded me of saying, "it is almost criminal to sell the Sceptres with out the Temblor sub woofer" It makes that much of a difference! That being said check it out for yourself - you won't be disappointed.

Purchased these monitors and WoW! They reveal what your mixing in a wide sound field with depth. Flat response takes a bit getting use to. Also able to do Home mastering that translates to other speakers. Nice surprise! Very pleased.

Surprising light weight for a powered monitor of this power and size. Sound is fabulous. Very efficient. You will want to hear these if you are looking for the best sound value. They look good too. Bonus.
