High-performance sound and a slim, elegant design

Definitive Technology Mythos STS SuperTowerŪ Floor-standing speaker with built-in powered subwoofer

Save floor space by having the subwoofers built directly into the tower speakers.

The Mythos STS SuperTower speaker delivers impressive, high-end home theatre sound. In fact, Stereophile's Wes Phillips wrote, "It just may be the best loudspeaker I've heard for $3,000/pair" (August 2008 issue). It features a sleek aluminum cabinet and some of Definitive's most advanced components and technologies.

But what really sets the Mythos STS 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.

High-tech components and design for exceptionally detailed sound

Near the top of the cabinet are two 4-1/2" midrange drivers 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 loads of sonic detail without the edginess of lesser tweeters.

Powerful bass built right into the cabinet

The lower section of the cabinet holds a 5" 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 12" 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.

Gorgeous aircraft-grade aluminum cabinet

Definitive took a step away from the traditional look of boxy floor-standing speakers, and built the Mythos STS'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 it up 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.

A spectacular addition !! January-03-16
Reviewer: Daryl S. from New York  
Loving these speakers. There is just simply not to love about them. Previously with my B&Ws they just werent hitting the highs enough to really emphasize the speech and therefore some muddy vocals were coming through and movies were sometimes difficult to get all the dialogue. And then along comes Mary (as the Association once said).  The Mythos just shine whether its simply adding a stellar bass to the sound with there built in subwoofers or just sitting beautifully in the room blissfully making my film surround sound just reeking with brilliance. They are amazing on every level and I have yet to hear even the slightest bit of distortion. I cannot recommend them enough.

I will start off with saying I have owned these speakers for about two years, very happy with the overall quality.  Made the step up from Klipsch Reference Speakers.  I took some time for my ears to adjust to these gems from the monstrous  bass and explosiveness the Klipsch line offered, they are still a guilty pleasure.  Anyways,  the bass is great and tight, highs clean and non fatiguing.  Very detailed  mid's and would recommend to anyone with a "medium" to "slightly" large room.  They speakers seem to play nice with the many receivers I own. Currently run with NAD C 356BEE.  When auditioned everyone I know is blown away!!  Recommend these speakers and the amp.

Reviewer: TitoM from San Juan, PR  
Ease to install and excellent match with receiver.  Needs a a few hours (more than 10 hrs.) of "breaking" to reach a peak sound. Still pending to see if an extra sub will be needed.

Beautiful design, clean rich sound, one of the top 10 Greatest  audiophile speakers;  under $3,500; CNET 2009.  Boxed well. beatiful black granet base.  I layed the speakers across the coach arms so I could assemble the stone bases,  They come with specialize feet for hard wood or carpet. The blend well into my room only the sound being the center of focus.
