Definitive Technology Mythos Five Floorstanding Tower Speaker Single

  • 40 Hz - 30 kHz
  • 8 Ohms 10-200W
  • 89dB
ICON Loading...

The widely imitated Mythos Series literally redefined the concept of floor-standing loudspeaker from big dark box to thin and sexy gleaming showoff when it was introduced. Mythos Towers are the perfect floor-standing complement to your wall mounted or table mounted flat screen television.

Mythos tower loudspeakers combine the elegant look of curved, hand-polished aircraft-grade Aluminum with state-of-the-art engineering technology that delivers the classic level of Definitive Technology sound quality: wide, dynamic soundstage, pinpoint imaging, and superb realism. Packed into these thin towers are exclusive damping technologies that ensure total rigidity, D'Appolito Driver Arrays in narrow PolyStone baffles (voice-matched with whole Mythos line for easy mix-and-match system building), Definitive's exclusive Planar Technology Pressure Driven Bass Radiators to enhance low frequency response, and sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Networks to more perfectly blend the drivers into a sonically seamless audio environment.

Mythos Five Tower Loudspeakers rise dramatically from Tempered Glass Bases that include carpet spikes and rubber feet for stability on any type of floor surface. Nothing complements your new high definition flat screen television with more style, versatility and sheer performance than the beautiful Mythos Series models.

  • newegg Superior Performance Components Each Mythos Five contains a D’Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 3-1/2 inch midrange drivers surrounding a 1 inch dome tweeter housed in a 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 active drivers are pressure-coupled to two 3-1/2 inch planar Low-Bass Radiators. The result is exceptional bass extension not normally found in slim on-wall loudspeakers. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Five 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 array’s 1 inch Pure Aluminum dome tweeter produces extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess.
  • newegg Rock-Solid Enclosure 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.

4 out of 5 eggsway cool speakers

Pros: Clean tight sound, kind of punches out at you. Plugged into old Mcintosh mc 2100 power amp rated 105rms @.05thd which means it can clip 200 watts at sa 2% distortion. I have always had issues with Mac's putting out more power than what they were rated for. Also using old McIntosh c-28 pre-amp. Speakers handle it well

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: I had first bought the Polk monitor 70. I had to give them up or they were going to blow up. Polks never did take wattage well.I bought them for price and now paid twice.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Speakers!!!

Pros: Great speakers!!! Awesome sound quality. Works like a charm with my Velodyne sub!!! Great deal!!! Got mine for $199 each.

Cons: Could be nice if it also came with a free optional wall mount unit.

5 out of 5 eggsBreathtaking sound with very small footprint

Pros: You won't believe how slender these towers are. The fact that such clear and powerful sound comes out of them is amazing.

They are great for music and movies. If I close my eyes while listening to a CD, it feels like I'm watching the band live. When I first got them I re-watched most of my favorite movies, it was such an awesome experience I wish I had bought the Mythos much sooner.

These are also the only speakers my wife has ever approved of. We've reclaimed a lot of space in the living room. The build quality is top-notch, I can see them easily lasting for 20-30 years.

Definitive Tech support is truly stellar. I knew this before I bought the Mythos 5 towers but the support I've received over email has been some of the best I've ever had.

Cons: A subwoofer is highly recommended.

5 out of 5 eggsClean sound and look

Pros: Slender design. Better balanced sound that a smaller bookshelf or on-wall speaker. Imaging for acoustic instruments is amazing.

Cons: Glass base could be a bit more adjustable/stable but this is nit-picking. Low end requires a sub.
