Overview: The Definitive Technology Gem Satellite
Loudspeakers provide high-quality sound as a front or back/side surround
speaker. Each Gem satellite loudspeaker features two high-definition 3-1/2 inch
high definition mid/bass drivers for life-like clarity and three-dimensional
imaging and a 1-inch (25mm) pure aluminum dome tweeter for high frequency
extension, detail and, smoothness. Each Gem satellite loudspeaker utilizes
angled drivers to disperse the sound over a broader area. The satellite speakers
feature a hand-polished gloss aircraft-grade extruded aluminum enclosure with
proprietary damping technologies to ensure total rigidity and accurate sound.
The satellite speakers can be placed on a table-top or wall-mounted.
Angled Drivers: Each Mythos Gem contains two 3-1/2 inch
long-throw mid/bass drivers that are angled in opposite directions to broaden
the midrange dispersion. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Gem is smooth and
controlled, allowing it to seamlessly blend with a powered subwoofer, such as
Definitive's SuperCubes, for audiophile-grade home theater performance.
Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeter: EachMythos Gem is equipped with
a 1-inch ferrofluid-dampened pure aluminum dome tweeter for extended, smooth
Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Network: The Mythos Gem uses a
sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Network to perfectly blend the drivers
into a sonically seamless audio environment.
Break-In Period: The Mythos Gem will sound good right out of
the box; however, an extended break-in period of 20-40 hours or more of playing
is required to reach full performance capability. The break-in period allows the
suspensions to work in and results in full bass, a more open midrange, and
smoother high frequency reproduction.
Extruded Aluminum Enclosure: The Mythos Gem enclosure is
hand-polished gloss back aircraft-grade extruded aluminum with proprietary
damping technologies that ensure total rigidity. All components are mounted on a
resonance-free PolyStone baffle. These construction technologies along with
state-of-the-art drivers and tweeter serve to deliver high quality sound with a
wide soundstage, pinpoint imaging, high dynamic impact, and superb realism.
Binding Posts: Each Mythos Gem is equipped with a pair of
gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.
Mounting: The Mythos Gem comes with a wall-mount bracket, so
you can easily mount the speaker on the wall (mounting screws not included). The
Mythos Gem also features a 1/4"-20 threaded insert for using Definitive
Technology's optional articulating wall-bracket (ProMount 80) to mount the
speaker on the wall. In addition, the Mythos Gem can be placed on a table-top,
shelf, or stand.
