Definitive Technology Mythos One tower loudspeaker combines the elegant look of
a curved, hand-polished aircraft-grade aluminum enclosure with state-of-the-art
engineering technology that delivers high-quality sound with a wide dynamic
soundstage, pinpoint imaging, and superb realism. Packed into these thin towers
are proprietary damping technologies that ensure total rigidity, D'Appolito
Driver Arrays in narrow polystone baffles (voice-matched with whole Mythos line
for easy mix-and-match system building), Definitive's exclusive planar
technology pressure driven bass radiators to enhance low frequency response, and
sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Networks to more perfectly blend the
drivers into a sonically seamless audio environment.
Speaker Array: The Definitive Technology Mythos One tower loudspeaker contains a D'Appolito array
consisting of two high-definition 5-1/4 inch midrange drivers surrounding a
1-inch dome tweeter housed in a sealed enclosure. The Mythos One also features
two 5-1/4 inch high-definition bass drivers that are
pressure-coupled to two 5-1/4 inch planar low-bass radiators for a total bass
radiating surface greater than that of a single 8 inch conventional woofer. The
result is exceptional bass extension and power. The loudspeakers active drivers
feature die cast Aluminum baskets, mono-polymer cones, and finite element
analysis optimized magnet structures for clear low distortion life-like sound. The tower loudspeaker utilizes a 1-inch
pure aluminum dome tweeter with an acoustically contoured faceplate for
excellent high frequency extension, detail, and smoothness. The bass roll-off of the Mythos
One is smooth and controlled, allowing it to seamlessly blend with a powered
subwoofer, such as Definitive's SuperCubes, for audiophile-grade home theater
Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Network: The sophisticated
Linkwitz-Riley crossover network design used in the Mythos One tower
loudspeakers equalize the drivers for linear phase and frequency response
to more perfectly blend the drivers into a sonically seamless audio environment.
Break-In Period: The Mythos One 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 One enclosure is
hand-polished gloss-black 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: The Mythos One is equipped with a pair of
gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.
Tempered-Glass Base: The Mythos
One tower loudspeakers feature a tempered glass base that include carpet spikes
and rubber feet for stability on any type of floor surface.
Applications: The Definitive Technology Mythos One can be used as a
front main or rear/side surround speaker.
- Front: When used as front left and right speakers, the Mythos
tower loudspeakers can be placed right next to your flat-panel TV with
excellent results or may be separated by a distance greater the width of the
TV. The speakers may be angled in toward the listening position or left
parallel with each other.
- Surround: When used as rear or side surround speaker, the Mythos
tower loudspeakers may be located on the side or behind the listeners. When
used on the sides, take care never to locate the speakers forward of the
listeners. If the speakers are placed on the rear wall, it is suggested that
they be positioned fairly wide apart if possible.
