Imagine you've just finished mounting your new, ultra-thin HDTV on the wall. You pop a movie into your disc player and turn on your system. You hear the first few opening chords in Return of the Jedi and...the sound is flat and tinny, more like kazoos than a full orchestra. The movie just isn't grabbing you a sure sign that it may be time to upgrade your speakers. Check out Definitive's wall-mountable flat-panel Mythos XTR-40 speaker. It can give you the rich, cinematic sound you crave without sacrificing floor space or filling your room with bulky speakers. Use one each for your home theater's left, right, and center channels, and enjoy high-performance sound from clean-looking speakers that measure a mere 1-1/2" deep.
State-of-the-art driver design for impressively accurate sound
Using precise computer modeling and years of design experience, Definitive created incredibly thin, space-efficient "XTDD" drivers. These shallow drivers optimize every part of the speaker surface to maintain a high level of performance. The XTR-40 uses two 3-1/2" XTDD drivers, each one pressure-coupled to a low-bass radiator, for big sound from a total of four dome woofers. And at the center of the baffle is the same pure aluminum dome tweeter used in Definitive's flagship Mythos ST SuperTower® speakers. It produces extended highs, revealing nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess.
Build an attractive XTR home theater system in your home
With a depth of only 1-1/2", this slim speaker looks great next to a flat-panel TV.
The Mythos XTR-40 comes with a wall-mounting bracket that allows for either vertical or horizontal placement, with a total installation depth of just 1-9/16" inches. The specially shaped enclosure is made of black hand-polished aluminum, and uses stiffing ribs and channels to make it rigid and resonance-free. It's such an attractive speaker, we can almost guarantee you'll get compliments on it. Put together a complete home theater system using XTR-40 speakers for your front three channels. Add on Definitive's Mythos Gem or Mythos Gem XL surround speakers for wraparound sound. And for high-impact bass, check out these Definitive subwoofers.

Did you know?
Your new speakers will probably sound better after several weeks of use than they do right out of the box. That's because the material surrounding the woofers will loosen up, allowing the drivers to move more fully. Definitive Technology estimates a break-in period of 24 to 48 hours of playback before the speakers will deliver optimum sound quality.
