Sceptre S8 vs Sceptre S6/Temblor T10 vs Fluid FPX7

Hi folks,
Just a quick question
I have a chance of getting the Fluids for £600 for the pair so yeah, cheap.
I have the T10 and I'm upgrading a well treated small room from Eris E8.
Would the Sceptres be a million miles away from the Fluids? Should I sell the sub and get the S8s or S6s with the sub?
Any help would be appreciated.
PS this is my first post here, so be kind

I have Scepter 8s running with an M-Audio sub though I run things a little differently than most. The sub is run separate from the S8s both from a switch witch. I can turn the sub off. Also, the S8s are run full range (not connected/crossed by the sub) and the sub itself is crossed at 50 or 60hz. I completely avoid the normal 80 Hz crossover between sub and tops in to me, it avoids the emphasis of bass guitar tones and sounds much cleaner.

Running this way, everything translates effortlessly (room is treated).

I had PSI A21Ms for a bit. Their detail was insane. But, the S8s do 80% of what they did - hearing compression, EQ and effects clearly, hearing frequency buildup, etc.

I can’t think I of any speakers for $3-4K that would be a real upgrade from Scepters. You have to spend $5-6k to really be worth it. They really do well.
