Both models are component loudspeakers designed to be used with a surround receiver and powered subwoofer.

The XTR-SSA5 (MSRP $999) features Definitive's Spatial Array, a patented technology that reportedly optimizes the spatial presentation of five channels to create the illusion that the listeners are surrounded by five separate speakers. The XTR-SSA3 (MSRP $799) uses Spatial Array technology on the Left and Right channels to widen the soundstage, the company claims.

The XTR-SSA3 and XTR-SSA5 are 1-5/8 (4cm) deep, designed for use next to ultra-slim TVs. All XTR model enclosures are fabricated from hand polished aircraft grade extruded Aluminum.

Both XTR-SSA models come supplied with a wall mount bracket as well as adjustable supports for horizontal shelf placement that allow the speaker to be raised up over protruding TV shelf stands.
