Overview: The Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-50
loudspeaker offers maximum versatility for your home theater and flat-panel
entertainment system (perfect size for 46"-55" TV); it can be used as an on-wall
or shelf-mounted Front, Center, and Surround speaker. The Mythos XTR-50
features a high-gloss aircraft-grade extruded aluminum enclosure with
proprietary damping technologies to ensure total rigidity and perfectly accurate
sound. It also features two 3-1/2" XTDD anodized aluminum mid/bass drivers
pressure-coupled to four 3-1/2" dome low-bass radiators, and a 1" (25mm)
pure aluminum dome tweeter with an acoustically contoured faceplate for
excellent high frequency extension, detail, and smoothness.
Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeter: The center-mounted 1" tweeter is
the same hyper-definition pure aluminum dome tweeter found in Definitive's
award-winning state-of-the-art Mythos ST SuperTower. The pure aluminum dome
tweeter provides clarity, dynamic range, and extended high-frequency response.
XTDD Technology Drivers: The Definitive Technology Mythos
XTR-50 loudspeaker utilizes Definitive's patent-pending XTDD technology anodized
Aluminum dome driver for extraordinary performance. Using state-of-the-art
computer modeling and decades of speaker design experience, Definitive engineers
eliminated every inch of wasted space, optimized every part, and maximized the
moving surface area of a dynamic driver to shrink it down to a very compact
dimension without giving up ultra high performance audio fidelity. The XTDD
drivers provide dynamic punch, a wide frequency range, and broad dispersion that
flat vibrating membrane panel-type speakers simply cannot match.
Pressure Coupled Design: To extend and deepen the bass
response of such a thin speaker, the two 3.5" XTDD drivers are pressure coupled to four
3.5" anodized aluminum dome bass radiators.
Ultra-Thin Aluminum Enclosure: The Definitive Technology
Mythos XTR-50 features an ultra-thin (1.5" deep) aircraft-grade aluminum cabinet that fits today's flat-panel televisions perfectly.
By specially shaping the enclosure and incorporating stiffing ribs and channels,
Definitive made the space-efficient extruded aluminum enclosure ultra-rigid and
resonance-free. The magnets of the XTDD drivers protrude through the rear wall
of the enclosure to further minimize depth. A thermally conductive gasket seals
the enclosure/magnet interface and transfers heat from the driver's rare-earth
magnet to the enclosure, making the whole enclosure a giant heat dissipater.
Magnetic Grille: The Mythos XTR-50 LCR speaker features a
black cloth magnetic grille which easily attaches and detaches from the speaker.
Speaker Terminals: The Mythos XTR-50 is equipped with a
plug-in C-clamp speaker terminal to attach your receiver's speaker wire (up to 14 AWG).
Applications: The Mythos XTR-50 can be used as left & right
main, center, and surround speakers in your home theater audio system. The
Mythos XTR-50 can be mounted on the wall or placed on a tabletop vertically or
horizontally as a left & right main speaker, center speaker, or surround
Mounting: The Mythos XTR-50 can be mounted vertically or
horizontally on a wall or on a shelf. The XTR-50 can be mounted directly to the
wall using the key-hole slots on the back of the enclosure and well-anchored
screws. If you choose, the speaker can be wall mounted using the supplied
mounting bracket that allows either vertical or horizontal orientation with a
total installed on-wall depth of only 1.5625". Two adjustable support feet are
supplied in cases where you place the XTR-50 on a shelf as a center-channel
speaker (horizontal orientation). For vertical shelf or table-top placement, the
XTR-50 comes with a smoked tempered glass base.
Note: The XTR-50 measures 30" tall x 9.625" wide x 6.1875" deep
when attached to the included pedestal base.
