One question first: did you quote the "Limit Maximum Image 
Resolution to:" option in the "File/Preferences/PDF options" 
300 to 400 dpi would be a good choice depending on the 
lineature your printer is using.

In the same dialog you could also consider to test "Image 
Compression Quality:" set to "High" instead of "Maximum" and 
see if the resulting quality isn't good enough for print as 
the file size will decrease accordingly.

Second, please consider that Adobe is the creator of 
PostScript and PDF file spécifications and I guess their 
knowledge and experience for optimizing it is significantly 
better that could be the one of Scribus developers!

These are just suggestions to help you resolve your issue... :)
