In quantum chaos, the spectral statistics generally follows the predictions of Random Matrix Theory (RMT). A notable exception is given by scar states, that enhance probability density around unstable periodic orbits of the classical system, therefore causing significant deviations of the spectral density from RMT expectations. In this work, the problem is considered of both RMT-ruled and scarred chaotic systems coupled to an opening. In particular, predictions are derived for the spectral density of a chaotic Hamiltonian scattering into a single- or multiple channels. The results are tested on paradigmatic quantum chaotic maps on a torus. The present report develops the intuitions previously sketched in [D. Lippolis, EPL 126 (2019) 10003].
