When it comes to perfect replication of professional theater sound, the most important component of any home theater's speaker configuration is the center channel speaker. This speaker not only has to deliver a movie's dialogue with crystal-clear audio imaging, it also has to disperse high-end audio elements, such as sound effects and various background musical surges during an action-packed movie sequence, into the listening area.

Definitive Technology is an audio manufacturer that understands the importance of integrating a high-quality center channel with the rest of your home theater speaker set-up, so they have designed the $400 Mythos 7 On-Wall speaker to be used as the center channel speaker for that specific purpose. This extremely well-designed speaker incorporates an acoustically contoured faceplate with a one-inch pure aluminum dome tweeter, resulting in a much smoother and more detailed frequency response.

The overall powerful design of the Mythos 7 is successfully combined with a modern-looking aesthetic that should blend in quite well with any home theater environment. Weighing in at a fairly light seven pounds, this speaker has a reported frequency response of 60Hz-30kHz and features sturdy aircraft grade extruded aluminum as its primary enclosure material. The speaker's two three-inch high-definition bass/midrange drivers are combined with two three-inch pressure coupled bass radiators that help drive superior low-end audio into the listening area with powerful dexterity.

The Mythos 7 was designed for use as a center channel speaker that should be installed directly underneath your flat-panel HDTV or your projection screen for best results. This speaker can also be mounted on a flat table surface if you prefer. It is available in either gloss black or polished silver, both of which lend a very attractive and eye-pleasing element to this Definitive Technology center channel speaker.
