Overview: The Definitive Technology Mythos Six is a compact
high-definition loudspeaker which can be used as a front or surround speaker for
your home theater system. The Mythos Six is equipped with two high-definition
3-1/2 inch drivers pressure-coupled to two 3-12 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 Six
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.
Speaker Array: The Definitive Technology Mythos Six contains
a D'Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 3-1/2 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 3-1/2 inch planar low-bass radiators for exceptional bass extension. The
bass roll-off of the Mythos Six is smooth and controlled, allowing it to
seamlessly blend with a powered subwoofer, such as Definitive's SuperCubes, for
audiophile-grade home theater power and precision. A 1-inch Pure Aluminum dome
tweeter produces the speakers extended highs.
Break-In Period: The Mythos Six 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 Six 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: The Mythos Six is equipped with a pair of
gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.
Applications: The Mythos Six can be used as front main or
rear/side surround speaker in your home theater audio system. The Mythos Six
should only be positioned vertically when wall-mounting or shelf-mounting the
Mounting: The Definitive Technology Mythos Six 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
Optional Stand: The Mythos Six loudspeaker can also mounted
to Definitive Technology's Mythos proprietary speaker stand (735MYTH65ST, sold
separately), designed specifically for the Mythos 6 loudspeaker. The speaker
stand features matching extruded aluminum construction and a tempered-glass
