Enjoy rich sound from this versatile, wall-mount speaker

The enclosure is made of black hand-polished aluminum for a sleek look that'll go well with most modern décors. The Mythos Eight comes with a wall-mounting bracket that will adapt to most swing out, arm-style TV wall mounts, so the speaker moves along with your TV when you reposition it.

High-tech drivers for exceptionally detailed sound

Tweeter

At the center of the cabinet are two 5-1/4" midrange drivers surrounding a 1" dome tweeter. The pure aluminum dome tweeter produces extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess. Flanking the midranges are two 5-1/4" bass radiators, which give the Mythos Eight better bass performance than you might expect from a slim, on-wall speaker. Die-cast aluminum baskets, a resonance-free PolyStone baffle, and proprietary damping technologies built into the cabinet ensure clean sound.

Product Research

Overview: The Definitive Technology Mythos Eight loudspeaker offers maximum versatility for your home theater and flat-panel entertainment system; it can be used as an on-wall Front, Center, or Surround speaker, or as a shelf-mounted center speaker. The Mythos Eight 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 high-definition 5-1/4 inch drivers pressure-coupled to two 5-1/4 inch planar low-bass radiators for a total bass radiating surface greater than a that of a 10 inch woofer , and a 1 inch (25mm) ceramic-coated pure aluminum dome tweeter with an acoustically contoured faceplate for excellent high frequency extension, detail and smoothness.

Driver Technology

Speaker Array: The Definitive Technology Mythos Eight contains a D'Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 5-1/4 inch drivers surrounding a 1-inch dome tweeter housed in an acoustically isolated sealed 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 5-1/4 inch planar low-bass radiators for a total bass radiating surface greater than that of a 10-inch conventional woofer. The result is exceptional bass extension not normally found in slim on-wall loudspeakers. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Eight 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.

Drivers: The two active 5-1/4" drivers surround a pure aluminum dome tweeter whose dome is heat-treated to relax the crystal structure and then coated with a ceramic to produce extended highs.

Break-In Period: The Mythos Eight 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 Eight 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 Eight is equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire

Mounting Options

Applications: The Mythos Eight can be used as left & right main, center, and surround speakers in your home theater audio system. The Mythos Eight can be mounted on the wall vertically or horizontally as a left & right main speaker or surround speaker. The Mythos Eight can also be use as a center channel speaker and wall-mounted horizontally or placed horizontally on a table-top or shelf.

Mounting: The Mythos Eight comes with easy-to-install mounting hardware that allows you to hang the speaker on the wall below, above, or beside your flat-panel television in a vertical or horizontal orientation. The Mythos Eight is engineered to be placed flush with the wall and close to the edge of your television while delivering realistic sound that is accurate, with lifelike imaging and clarity. The Mythos Eight's 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. A supplied adjustable foot and two self-adhesive rubber feet permit easy shelf mounting when the speaker is used in the horizontal center-channel format.

Angle Adjustment: The Mythos Eight has a bracket with foot which screws into the speaker's wall-bracket to stabilize the speaker and allows you to adjust the vertical angle when the system is placed on a flat horizontal surface. When you set the 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.
