Our take on the Definitive Technology Mythos Four

by Kristen Schaub
Definitive Technology

Floor-standing speakers — still standing tall

Sure, floor-standing tower speakers buck the industry trend toward smaller, visually inconspicuous speakers, but they're hard to beat if great sound is your primary goal. Tower speakers produce powerful sound with excellent bass, making them a great choice for serious music lovers and for folks who want high-impact home theater.

Get high-end sound from this sleek floor-standing speaker

You don't have to sacrifice your room's décor to get rich, detailed home theater sound. The Definitive Technology Mythos Four has a slim, curved cabinet that combines the elegance of hand-polished aluminum with state-of-the-art Definitive driver technology. You'll really like the look of Mythos — its sleek design is at home in rooms where boxy conventional speakers wouldn't stand a chance. And you'll love the way its big, full-range sound enhances your favorite movies, TV shows, and video games.

High-tech drivers for exceptionally detailed sound

Tweeter

Close-up of the pure aluminum dome tweeter.

The driver array near the top of the cabinet has two 4-1/2" midranges flanking a 1" dome tweeter, with all three sharing a sealed compartment that isolates them from the bass drivers, for accurate sound with pinpoint imaging. The pure aluminum dome tweeter produces extended highs that reveal nuance and subtle detail without a trace of edginess. Below this array are two 4-1/2" woofers pressure-coupled to two bass radiators for low-frequency response that's smooth and controlled.


Gorgeous aircraft-grade aluminum cabinet

The slender Mythos Four cabinet is made of black hand-polished aluminum, and rests on a tempered glass base to maintain rigidity and stability. Every aspect of the enclosure has been engineered for optimum sound quality. For example, the non-resonant PolyStone front baffle holds all seven drivers securely in place while fighting distortion-causing vibrations. Definitive's goal is simple: you should be hearing the drivers, not the enclosure.


Complete your Mythos speaker system

Build a complete home theater system using perfectly matched Definitive Technology centers and surrounds. The Mythos Four pairs well with Definitive's Mythos Three for the center channel, and a pair of Mythos Twos or Mythos Gems for surround speakers. Add the SuperCube II, SuperCube III or ProSub 1000 for hard-hitting bass.

Overview: The Definitive Technology Mythos Four 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.

Driver Technology

Speaker Array: The Definitive Technology Mythos Four tower loudspeaker contains a D'Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 4-1/2 inch midrange drivers surrounding a 1-inch dome tweeter housed in a sealed enclosure. The Mythos Four also features two 4-1/2 inch high-definition bass drivers that are pressure-coupled to two 4-1/2 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 Four is smooth and controlled, allowing it to seamlessly blend with a powered subwoofer, such as Definitive's SuperCubes, for audiophile-grade home theater performance.

Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Network: The sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley crossover network design used in the Mythos Four 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 Four 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 Four 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.

Connections

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

Mounting Options

Tempered-Glass Base: The Mythos Four 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 Four 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.

Excellent Speakers for Home Theater or Music

Written By Wayne, St. Charles, IL on Sunday, January 23, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I have long been a fan of Definitve Technology speakers. The Mythos Fours are no exception. I teamed these speakers with a Mythos Three Center Channel and a Definitive Technology subwoofer and rear satellite speakers. The combination of speakers provides a very satisfying home theater experience. The Mythos Fours are also great for music. They are attractive, solid, and well built. Highly recommended.
