Definitive Technology Mythos Five Loudspeaker System


Is there any home-theater component sexier than a big flat-panel HD monitor? According to industry analysts and my own unofficial polling (friends, family, and other lovable eccentrics) the answer is a flat N-O! And this in spite of the unanimity among...

way cool speakers


I had first bought the Polk monitor 70. I had to give them up or they were going to blow up. Polks never did take wattage well.I bought them for price and now paid twice.

Clean tight sound, kind of punches out at you. Plugged into old Mcintosh mc 2100 power amp rated 105rms @.05thd which means it can clip 200 watts at sa 2% distortion. I have always had issues with Mac's putting out more power than what they were rated...

Breathtaking sound with very small footprint


You won't believe how slender these towers are. The fact that such clear and powerful sound comes out of them is amazing ; They are great for music and movies. If I close my eyes while listening to a CD, it feels like I'm watching the band live. When I...

A subwoofer is highly recommended

Mythos 5


Amazing speakers for movies and music, and they look great in the living room. Bought a supercube III with them, and they sound incredible together.

Product Specifications

The widely imitated Mythos series literally redefined the concept of floor-standing loudspeaker from big dark box to thin and sexy gleaming showoff when it was introduced. Mythos towers are the perfect floor-standing complement to your wall mounted or table mounted flat screen television. Mythos tower loudspeakers combine the elegant look of curved, hand-polished aircraft-grade aluminum with state-of-the-art engineering technology that delivers the classic level of Definitive Technology sound quality: wide, dynamic soundstage, pinpoint imaging, and superb realism. Packed into these thin towers are proprietary damping technologies that ensure total rigidity, D'Appolito driver arrays in narrow PolyStone baffles (voice-matched with whole Mythos line for easy mix-and-match system building), Definitive's exclusive Planar Technology pressure driven bass radiators to enhance low frequency response, and sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley crossover networks to more perfectly blend the drivers into a sonically seamless audio environment. Mythos Five tower loudspeakers rise dramatically from unbreakable tempered glass bases that include carpet spikes and rubber feet for stability on any type of floor surface. Nothing complements your high definition flat screen television with more style, versatility and sheer performance than the beautiful Mythos series models. Each Mythos Five contains a D'Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 3-1/2 inch midrange drivers surrounding a 1 inch dome tweeter housed in a 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 active drivers are pressure-coupled to two 3-1/2 inch planar low-bass radiators. The result is exceptional bass extension not normally found in slim on-wall loudspeakers. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Five 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. The array's 1 inch pure aluminum dome tweeter produces extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess. Mythos Series enclosures are hand-polished gloss aircraft-grade extruded aluminum with proprietary damping technologies that ensure total rigidity. All components are mounted on a resonance-free PolyStone baffle. These rock-solid 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.
