Our take on the Definitive Technology Mythos Two

by Kristen Schaub
Definitive Technology

Dynamic sound from this versatile, wall-mountable speaker

Mount Definitive Technology's Mythos Two speakers on either side of your flat-panel TV for a major sound upgrade. This versatile speaker can be used as a front left, right, or surround channel speaker in a home theater setup. It's wall-mountable, or you can position it on the included glass base for placement on your entertainment cabinet. Best of all, the Mythos Two features some of Definitive's best speaker technologies for a wide soundstage, pinpoint imaging, and superb realism.

High-tech drivers for exceptionally detailed sound

tweeter

The pure aluminum dome tweeter produces sparkling, clear highs.

At the center of the cabinet are two 4-1/2" midrange drivers surrounding a 1" dome tweeter. The pure aluminum dome tweeter produces extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess. Surrounding the midranges are two 4-1/2" bass radiators, which give the Mythos Two better bass performance than you might expect from such a slim speaker. Die-cast aluminum baskets and proprietary damping technologies built into the cabinet ensure clean sound.


Gorgeous aircraft-grade aluminum cabinet

The enclosure is made of black hand-polished aluminum for a sleek look that'll go well with most modern décors. The Mythos Two comes with a wall-mounting bracket that will adapt to most swing out, arm-style TV wall mounts, so the speaker moves along with your TV when you reposition it.

System building

Add Definitive's SuperCube III or ProSub 800 for hard-hitting bass.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere. That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box, verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs. We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Overview: The Definitive Technology Mythos Two is a compact high-definition loudspeaker which can be used as a front or surround speaker for your home theater system. The Mythos Two is equipped with two high-definition 4-1/2 inch drivers pressure-coupled to two 4-1/2 inch planar low-bass radiators, and a 1-inch pure aluminum dome tweeter with an acoustically contoured faceplate for exceptional high-frequency extension, detail, and smoothness. The Mythos Two also features a hand-polished gloss aircraft-grade extruded aluminum enclosure with proprietary damping technologies to ensure total rigidity and perfectly accurate sound. The loudspeaker can be shelf-mounted or wall-mounted using the supplied pedestal base and wall-mount bracket.

Driver Technology

Speaker Array: The Definitive Technology Mythos Two contains a D'Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 4-1/2 inch drivers housed in a air-tight enclosure. The drivers feature die cast Aluminum baskets, mono-polymer cones and finite element analysis optimized magnet structures for clear low distortion life-like sound. The active drivers are pressure-coupled to two 4-1/2 inch planar low-bass radiators for a total bass radiating surface greater than a that of an 8 inch woofer. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Two is smooth and controlled, allowing it to seamlessly blend with a powered subwoofer, such as Definitive's SuperCubes, for audiophile-grade home theater performance. A 1-inch Pure Aluminum dome tweeter produces the speakers extended highs.

Break-In Period: The Mythos Two 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.

Enclosure Design

Extruded Aluminum Enclosure: The Mythos Two 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.

Connections

Binding Posts: The Mythos Two is equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.

Mounting Options

Applications: The Mythos Two can be used as front main or rear/side surround speaker in your home theater audio system. The Mythos Two should only be positioned vertically when wall-mounting or shelf-mounting the speaker.

Mounting: The Definitive Technology Mythos Two comes with easy-to-install mounting hardware that allows it to hang on the wall beside your flat-panel television. The included wall mount bracket allows direct mounting to a wall and also adapts to flat panel TV swing out arm-style wall mounts so that the speaker angle changes with the TV angle. It also includes a tempered glass base to give them stability and style when placed next to a table-top flat-panel television.
