Nothing complements your new high definition flat screen television with more style, versatility and sheer performance than the beautiful Mythos Series models. The Mythos Three is a table/shelf-mount and on-wall center channel speaker in the critically acclaimed Mythos line of high performance loudspeakers. The Mythos Three come with easy-to-install mounting hardware that allows it to mount on the wall above or below your television. Also included is hardware that allows you to place the speaker on the TV or on a shelf or table top. Mythos Three is the perfect match center speaker for the Mythos Two main speakers for a truly exceptional home theater audio system.

  • newegg Superior Performance Components Each Mythos Three contains a D’Appolito array consisting of three high-definition 4-1/2 inch drivers housed in a air-tight 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 4-1/2 inch planar Low-Bass Radiators for a total bass radiating surface greater than that of an 8 inch conventional woofer. The result is exceptional bass extension and power not normally found in slim on-wall loudspeakers of this size. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Three 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 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.
  • newegg Versatility The Mythos Three 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. An adjustable rubber-tipped foot on the supplied table-top mounting hardware permits vertical plane angle adjustment to point the speaker at the ideal angle.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Upgrade

Pros: Upgraded a JBL center channel to this, what an improvement! Dialog is much more clear at the same volume levels.

Cons: None that I discovered

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: Quality. This speaker is very robust. I feel like I could drop it off a 2 story building and it only get a scratch. My Yamaha RX-V673 pushes it nicely. Easily sits on top of entertainment center below TV. I moved it to the wall just above TV. Included bracket made it easy.

Cons: Banana connectors on back are not centered. Made it harder to route wires to race up to the center of speaker.

Other Thoughts: Weighs more than expected. Replaced aging Sony center and would recommend to anyone.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Sound!

Pros: Rich sound. Nice size and appearance. Good quality. Replaced the factory Bose small center channel speaker with this one. Wow - what an improvement!

Cons: Wish it had a bottom stand

5 out of 5 eggsRock solid,

Pros: This thing is a work of art. Sound much bigger than the drivers would normally give you. Still run it as a small speaker in receiver setup. Not a overinflated msrp center. Worth 4 bills all day long.

Cons: Really?

Other Thoughts: Matching it with a new set of BP 8's. Mad I waited so long to bite the bullet. Thought I was enjoying a new set of Polk Monitor 60s. Def Tech is on a different level in every way.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat center channel

Pros: Great price. I upgraded my 8 year old Boston Acoustic Center with this and the voices "pop" now. It drove me nuts when we watched movie of constantly turning the volume up to hear the soft speaking parts and down when things blew up. I can now hear voices so much clearer at lower volumes and does a great job dispersing sound. I am a new Definitive Technology fan and am loving this brand! Quality is top notch on this. You can feel the weight and casing and know this is very very well made.
I currently have mine sitting on the mantle under the TV and its perfect - just perfect. Recommend a Pioneer Elite / Marantz to go with this.

Cons: Check your space - it's quick lengthy and is intended mostly for mounting under slim TVs on the wall.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't be beat for the price

Pros: Highest quality overall for the price ) I got it on sale on Newegg for 60% off MSRP. I'm sure people would pay MSRP all day. The contruction and asthetics are worth 10 times the price. Mounting was easy and they look great on the wall. If I had a wife, she'd love them.

I bought this to upgrade my center channel. I had originally put a lot of money into an awesome high powered sub-woofer, so I got the better center sound I was looking for. I also bought the matching Mythos Two speakers to upgrade the fronts and rears. They all blend beautifully and look great.


Look, I know there are better sounding speakers... there always are. But it's about value and these speakers are an incredible overall value at Newegg's price. Remember the 20/80 rule - you get 80% of your results from 20% of your investment and have to spend the additional 80% to get that last 20%. This is especially true in audio/video. For almost everyone, it's not worth it. This are a superior value.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I'm sure I'll never have to buy fronts or backs again and I'll take them where and when I move. You can't beat them at this price. You should buy one before they're all gone.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Center Channel

Pros: Sounds amazing. Very nice highs and dialogue during movies sounds great. Blends very well with my Mythos One tower speakers. I have this speaker mounted to the wall beneath my wall mounted television and it looks fantastic.

Cons: Not really a con, but plan on having a dedicated subwoofer with any of the Mythos line of speakers. They are designed to be supplemented with a subwoofer and only sound their best with a sub.

Other Thoughts: Can't believe I got it for the price that I did. I was about to pay $400 a year ago at BB for this speaker...glad I waited. Love Newegg.

4 out of 5 eggsFantastic center

Pros: Crisp & clear vocals

Cons: Void of throaty sounds, not a full range speaker ~ insufficient bass.

Other Thoughts: If complimenting this with Mythos Two's for front right/left, I'd would recommend placing your sub at front to fill in the tonal gaps. Although I loved the look of descrete front speakers with the Three and Two's, I've learned my lesson and switched back to floorstanding front speakers with a large center to reclaim my theater system

5 out of 5 eggsvery good center speaker

Pros: Very good center speaker, works well with my Definitive Mythos Two front speakers, my Velodyne subwoofer, all powered up by Musical Fidelity HT-900 amplifier. Sounds much better when you add a subwoofer.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Excellent buy at Newegg's sale price, don't miss it!!!
