definitive-tech-mythos.jpgDefinitive Technology's Mythos on-wall speakers are designed for users seeking audiophile performance coupled with cutting edge design. The Mythos 3 center channel is 25.4 inches wide and costs $549. The Mythos 2 front left/right stand 25.25 inches high and are priced at $549 each. The Mythos Gem surrounds are quite compact at 10.25 inches high and reasonable at $279 each. The low end is covered by the SuperCube III subwoofer, which measures an equal 10.25 inches in width, depth and height ($699). Both the Mythos 2 and 3 feature a D'Appolito array, a technology created by Joseph D'Appolito in which two midrange/bass speakers are aligned on each side of the tweeter. This is comprised of two four-and-a-half-inch midrange drivers, a single one-inch pure aluminum dome tweeter and two four-and-a-half-inch bass radiators.

The Gems feature a pair of three-and-a-half-inch long throw midrange/bass drivers and the same one-inch aluminum tweeter found in the Mythos 2 and 3. The SuperCube III features a single seven-and-a-half-inch long throw driver and dual seven-and-a-half-inch bass radiators, all driven by a 650 watt internal amp.

Mythos speakers are available in either silver or black and are finished with aircraft-grade aluminum, a classy touch clearly intended to mate with modern flat panel designs. The Mythos line allows you the flexibility to mix and match, due to the fact that all of the speakers in the line are voice-matched and share the same driver technology. The Mythos 2's include beautiful glass stands for table mounting and all of the speakers in the Mythos line come packaged with wall mounts. If you're looking for this type of styling and sound quality, but don't want to spend over $1,500 for your front 3 speakers, Definitive Technology also offers the Mythos 6 (front left/right) and 7 (center channel), which feature smaller midrange drivers and bass radiators (three-and-a-half-inch) and cost $399 each. If you're the type who prefers to keep your front and center speakers set to "small," you might consider going this route and saving close to $500.
