Legendary Mythos® Performance for Flat Panel TVs
Nothing complements your new high definition flat screen television with more style, versatility and sheer performance than the beautiful Mythos Series models. The Mythos Eight is an on-wall model in the critically acclaimed Mythos line of high performance loudspeakers. Mythos Eights come with easy-to-install mounting hardware that allows them to hang on the wall astride your new television. Mythos wall-mounted models are engineered to be placed flush with the wall and close to the sides of your television (very sonically-unforgiving locations) and still deliver realistic sound that is accurate and utterly unexpected, with lifelike imaging and remarkable clarity. Mythos Eight can be used as Left & Right main, center and surround speakers for truly exceptional on-wall home theater audio systems.
Superior Performance Mid/Bass Drivers
Each Mythos Eight contains a D'Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 5-1/4 inch drivers surrounding a 1inch 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.
A Sweeter Tweeter
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 that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess.
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 Eight 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 feet permit easy shelf mounting when the speaker is used in the horizontal center-channel format.
