Overview: The Definitive Technology Mythos Seven
Center-Channel Speaker is the perfect center-speaker solution for your home
theater system and flat-panel television. The Mythos Seven center-channel
speaker features two high-definition 3-1/2 inch drivers pressure-coupled to two
3-1/2 inch planar low-bass radiators, and a 1-inch pure aluminum dome tweeter
with an acoustically contoured faceplate high frequency extension, detail, and
smoothness. The Mythos Seven features a hand-polished gloss aircraft-grade
extruded aluminum enclosure with proprietary damping technologies to ensure
total rigidity and accurate sound. The Mythos Seven center-channel speaker also
includes a wall-mounting bracket and an adjustable foot.
Speaker Array: The Definitive Technology Mythos Seven
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 drivers are pressure-coupled to two
3-1/2 inch planar Low-Bass Radiators for exceptional bass extension not normally
found in slim on-wall loudspeakers of this size. The bass roll-off of the Mythos
Seven 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 extended highs
that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess.
Break-In Period: The Mythos Seven 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 Seven enclosure is
hand-polished gloss black aircraft-grade extruded aluminum with proprietary
damping technologies that ensure total rigidity. All of its components are
mounted on a resonance-free PolyStone baffle. All of these construction
technologies, along with state-of-the-art drivers and tweeter, serve to deliver
classic Definitive Technology sound quality: wide soundstage, pinpoint imaging,
high dynamic impact, and superb realism.
Binding Posts: The Mythos Seven is equipped with a pair of
gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.
Placement: The Mythos Seven is designed for horizontal use
and can be used as either a front or rear center-channels speaker. As a
center-channel speaker, the Definitive Technology Mythos Seven can be placed
above or below your television.
Mounting: The Mythos Seven is a table/shelf-mount and
on-wall center-channel speaker. The Mythos Seven come with easy-to-install
mounting hardware that allows it to mount on the wall above or below your
television. The Mythos Seven comes with a wall mount bracket that 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
hardware that allows you to place the speaker on the TV, on a shelf , or on a
table top (surface must be at least 5-inches deep).
Angle Adjustment: The Mythos Seven has a simple built-in
device which allows you to adjust the vertical angle of the speaker. There is an
adjustable rubber-foot on the bottom-rear of the speaker cabinet. when you set
the center-channel speaker down, the speaker will lean back and rest on this
foot. By varying how far you screw in-and-out the foot, you can adjust the
vertical angle of the speaker. It is recommended that you aim the center-speaker
so that it aims directly towards the height of the listeners' ears.
