Angled Drivers: The Mythos Gem XL contains two 4-1/2 inch long-throw mid/bass drivers that are angled in opposite directions to broaden the midrange dispersion. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Gem XL is smooth and controlled, allowing it to seamlessly blend with a powered subwoofer, such as Definitive's SuperCubes, for audiophile-grade home theater performance.
Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeter: The Mythos Gem XL is equipped with a 1-inch ferrofluid-dampened pure aluminum dome tweeter for extended, smooth highs.
Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Network: The Mythos Gem XL uses a sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Network to perfectly blend the drivers into a sonically seamless audio environment.
Voice Matched: The Mythos Gem XL is voice-matched with the complete Definitive Technology Mythos Series speaker line-up.
Break-In Period: The Mythos Gem XL will sound good right out of the box; however, an extended break-in period of 20-40 hours or more of playing is required to reach full performance capability. The break-in period allows the suspensions to work in and results in full bass, a more open midrange, and smoother high frequency reproduction.
Extruded Aluminum Enclosure: The Mythos Gem XL enclosure is hand-polished gloss back aircraft-grade extruded aluminum with proprietary damping technologies that ensure total rigidity. All components are mounted on a resonance-free PolyStone baffle. These construction technologies along with state-of-the-art drivers and tweeter serve to deliver high quality sound with a wide soundstage, pinpoint imaging, high dynamic impact, and superb realism.
Binding Posts: The Mythos Gem XL is equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.
Mounting: The Mythos Gem XL comes with a wall-mount bracket, so you can easily mount the speaker on the wall (mounting screws not included). The Mythos Gem XL also features a 1/4"-20 threaded insert for using Definitive Technology's optional articulating wall-bracket (ProMount 90) to mount the speaker on the wall. In addition, the Mythos Gem XL can be placed on a table-top, shelf, or stand.
Applications: The Mythos Gem XL is a versatile speaker which can be used as a front or rear/side surround speaker.
