Definitive Technology Mythos Six
Multi-purpose home theatre speaker
Our take on the Definitive Technology Mythos Six by Crutchfield's Kristen Schaub
Enjoy rich sound from this wall-mountable or tabletop speaker
Definitive's compact Mythos Six speaker will deliver great sound no matter where you place it. This versatile speaker can be used as an on-wall left, right, or surround channel speaker, or you can mount it on the included glass base for placement on your entertainment cabinet. Best of all, the Mythos Six features some of Definitive's best speaker technologies for a wide soundstage, pinpoint imaging, and superb realism.
High-tech drivers for exceptionally detailed sound
The pure aluminum dome tweeter produces sparkling, clear highs.
At the center of the cabinet are two 3-1/2" midrange drivers surrounding a 1" dome tweeter. The pure aluminum dome tweeter produces extended highs that reveal nuance and shimmer without a trace of edginess. Surrounding the midranges are two 3-1/2" bass radiators, which give the Mythos Six better bass performance than you might expect from such a slim speaker.
Gorgeous aircraft-grade aluminum cabinet
The enclosure is made of black hand-polished aluminum for a sleek look that'll go well with most modern décors. Die-cast aluminum baskets, a resonance-free PolyStone baffle, and proprietary damping technologies built into the cabinet ensure clean sound.
Complete your Mythos speaker system
Put together a complete home theater system using Mythos Six speakers as your front left and right channels, a Mythos Seven for your center channel, and Definitive's Mythos Gem surround speakers. Add Definitive's SuperCube 2000 or ProSub 800 for hard-hitting bass.
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.

Replaced Infinity towers that was taking up too much room. Wasn't sure how such small speakers could replace floor speakers , but was amazingly surprised! Great sound and easy to install hanging them on the wall.

Overview: The Definitive Technology Mythos Six is a compact high-definition loudspeaker which can be used as a front or surround speaker for your home theater system. The Mythos Six is equipped with two high-definition 3-1/2 inch drivers pressure-coupled to two 3-12 inch planar low-bass radiators, and a 1-inch pure aluminum dome tweeter with an acoustically contoured faceplate for exceptional high-frequency extension, detail, and smoothness. The Mythos Six also features a hand-polished gloss aircraft-grade extruded aluminum enclosure with proprietary damping technologies to ensure total rigidity and perfectly accurate sound. The loudspeaker can be shelf-mounted or wall-mounted using the supplied pedestal base and wall-mount bracket.
Speaker Array: The Definitive Technology Mythos Six contains a D'Appolito array consisting of two high-definition 3-1/2 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 active drivers are pressure-coupled to two 3-1/2 inch planar low-bass radiators for exceptional bass extension. The bass roll-off of the Mythos Six 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 the speakers extended highs.
Break-In Period: The Mythos Six 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 Six 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 Six is equipped with a pair of gold-plated, 5-way binding posts to attach your receiver's speaker wire.
Applications: The Mythos Six can be used as front main or rear/side surround speaker in your home theater audio system. The Mythos Six should only be positioned vertically when wall-mounting or shelf-mounting the speaker.
Mounting: The Definitive Technology Mythos Six comes with easy-to-install mounting hardware that allows it to hang on the wall beside your flat-panel television. The included wall mount bracket allows direct mounting to a wall. It also includes a tempered glass base to give them stability and style when placed next to a table-top flat-panel television.
