On-wall, On-shelf L/C/R Loudspeaker
The Perfect match for Your Flat Panel TV
This beautiful and potent performer is perfectly proportioned to match 50" and larger TVs when used as left and right speakers; when used as a center speaker the Nine fits nicely with 42" and larger sets. It is the perfect center channel complement to the critically acclaimed Mythos STS SuperTowers® for a truly state-of-the-art home theater system.
Advanced Technologies Bring You Spectacular Sound Quality for Music and Movies
Through the use of advanced driver and enclosure technologies used in the top-of-the-line award-winning Mythos ST and STS SuperTowers; the Mythos Nine achieves a level of on-wall speaker performance exceeded only by the Mythos Ten.
Each Mythos® Nine contains two high-definition Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) 4-1/2" drivers (patent pending) that are pressure-coupled to two 4-1/2" x 8" racetrack-shaped planar Low-Bass Radiators for bass extension unheard of in a slim on-wall loudspeaker of this size. Thanks to the performance advantages of its BDSS drivers and racetrack bass radiators the Mythos Nine significantly outperforms other on-wall speakers in its size and price class. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Nine 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 two active 4-1/2" drivers surround a new generation Pure Aluminum dome tweeter, the same used in Definitive's Mythos® STS SuperTowers®. This remarkable new tweeter incorporates a new voice coil, new dome, new surround, and an acoustically contoured faceplate for unequaled high-frequency extension, detail, and smoothness.
Mythos Series enclosures are 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 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.
The Mythos Nine 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. Supplied adjustable foot permits easy shelf mounting when used in horizontal orientation.

"depth and clarity"
I am a piano technician specializing in servicing concert grand pianos, especially Yamaha. I have been a sound "geek" all my life searching for that depth and clarity that only can make a grown man weep. This speaker has done the trick. Without being in my face, it has added a perspective of fine music present in some of the best DVDs on the planet.
