The Mythos Gems are yet another astonishing breakthrough for Definitive Technology and today's state-of-the-art home theater. The Gems make the distinctive Mythos look – a gorgeous hand-polished, aircraft grade Aluminum enclosure--available in superbly designed high performance compact loudspeakers. Because they are voice-matched with the complete Mythos Series, they're perfect for use as compact, convenient surround speakers in a system made up of larger Mythos main speakers, or as a complete Gem-only compact high performance home theater system when combined with a Mythos Seven Center Channel Speaker and a SuperCube subwoofer.

Mythos Gem Speakers feature an easy-to-use keyhole slot bracket (and mounting screw) for simple wall mounting that looks amazing next to your wall mounted flat screen television. Or use the custom GemStand, with its flowing lines and hidden wire guide, for a superbly coherent and elegant modern look with the convenience of floor-standing speakers. You can also use popular articulating wall mount brackets (available separately).

State-of-the-art engineering technology delivers the classic level of Definitive Technology sound quality: wide, dynamic soundstage, pinpoint imaging, and superb realism. Packed into these compact enclosures are proprietary damping technologies that ensure total rigidity, angled mid/bass drivers in PolyStone baffles, and sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Networks to more perfectly blend the drivers into a sonically seamless audio environment. Nothing complements your high definition flat screen television with more style, versatility and sheer performance than the beautiful Mythos Series models.

  • newegg Superior Performance Components Each Mythos Gem contains two 3-1/2 inch mid/bass drivers that are angled in opposite directions to broaden the midrange dispersion for the kind of diffuse soundfield sought after by home theater fanatics for surround loudspeakers. Use the Mythos Gems for front and surround channel duties and you’ll be rewarded with spacious and enveloping surround effects that will make you feel like you’re in the cast of the movie. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Gem 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, spacious imaging, high dynamic impact, and superb realism.

5 out of 5 eggsCompact Size / Full Sound

Pros: Perfect tonal match with Mythos 4 towers as front L/R and Mythos 3 center. Compact size increases their aesthetic appeal -- especially since they are optimally positioned to the left and right of where you are sitting. [Nearly] full range sound from such a diminutive, beautifully finished enclosure. Note: set your surround speaker setting to "large" or "full range" to get the best sound from them. Don't worry, they can take it. Otherwise, they will indeed sound "small." THX crossover is 80Hz. Start there, then experiment.

Cons: Expensive. Good luck finding them on sale, or at a discount. That being said, they're worth it, even if competing brands sell significantly cheaper surround speakers.

Other Thoughts: We have these mounted on the optional Mythos Gem stands. They are (obviously) a perfect fit with the Gem speakers, neatly hide the speaker cable, and are finished just as beautifully as the speakers. The speakers and stands are highly recommended.
