Contemporary looks and high-performance sound for serious listeners
The Mythos ST SuperTower combines stunning cosmetics with impressive, high-end sonic performance. It features a sleek aluminum cabinet and many of Definitive's most advanced components and technologies. But what really sets the Mythos ST apart from typical speakers is the SuperCube® powered subwoofer built right into the cabinet. It allows this speaker to generate startlingly deep bass, for big home theatre sound. In fact, Home Theatre magazine's Darryl Wilkinson wrote, "You'd have to spend gobs more money to get anything else that offers this combination of performance and beauty. The Mythos STs are an audiophile's speaker wrapped in an interior designer's cabinet that sells for much less than you'd expect to pay for either."
High-tech components and design for exceptionally detailed sound

Near the top of the cabinet are two 5-1/4" midranges flanking a 1" dome tweeter, all acoustically isolated in their own sub-enclosure to prevent interference from the bass drivers. Each midrange features Definitive's Balanced Dual Surround System (BDSS) technology, which employs rubber surrounds on both the outer and inner edges of each speaker cone, for more stable, precise motion, resulting in exceptional clarity. The pure aluminum dome tweeter has a special ceramic coating, so you'll hear every subtle sonic detail without the edginess of lesser tweeters.
Powerful bass built right into the cabinet
The lower section of the cabinet holds a 6" x 10" racetrack-shaped woofer reinforced by two bass radiators. This combination creates a total surface area that's actually greater than that of a traditional 15" woofer, but the three-driver approach provides better low-frequency control, speed, and detail. A built-in 300-watt amplifier powers the subwoofer, delivering massive bass that eliminates the need for an external sub. Aside from saving you some floor space, the built-in subwoofer ensures balanced system sound because the bass is already perfectly blended with the mids and the highs. The subwoofer also has an adjustable volume control so you can fine-tune the bass to suit your room or taste.
Each speaker has an aluminum cabinet and a polished granite base.
Gorgeous aircraft-grade aluminum cabinet
Definitive took a step away from the traditional look of boxy floor-standing speakers, and designed the Mythos ST's slim, curved cabinet using contemporary design principles. The enclosure is made of black hand-polished aluminum, and rests on a polished granite base to ensure total rigidity and stability. Hooking up the Mythos ST is as simple as running one set of speaker wires from your amplifier or receiver to the speaker.

Did you know?
Your new speakers will probably sound better after several weeks of use than they do right out of the box. That's because the material surrounding the woofers will loosen up, allowing the drivers to move more fully. Definitive Technology estimates a break-in period of 24 to 48 hours of playback before the speakers will deliver optimum sound quality.
