Product Description

Product Description

The perfect speaker choice for ultra-thin LED TVs is the Definitive Mythos XTR-50. It combines the thin profile of “panel” speakers with the high definition detail and dynamic range performance of large dynamic systems.Revolutionary XTDD Technology. The secret to the XTR-50’s extraordinary performance is Definitive’s exclusive XTDD driver. Using state-of-the-art computer modeling definitive eliminated every iota of wasted space and optimized every part to shrink it down to an impossibly compact dimension without giving up high performance audio fidelity! This driver has the kind of dynamic punch, frequency range and broad dispersion that flat vibrating membrane-type speakers cannot match. To extend and deepen the bass response the drivers are pressure coupled to four dome low-bass radiators. The tweeter is the same Aluminum Dome Tweeter found in Definitive’s award-winning Mythos ST SuperTower. The result is the kind of clarity, dynamic range and extended response that one would expect from a premium-priced normally-sized speaker. Another secret to the XTR-50’s thin profile and superior performance is its aluminum cabinet. By incorporating stiffing ribs Definitive made the space-efficient aluminum extrusion rigid and resonance-free. The XTR-50 comes supplied with a wall mounting bracket that allows vertical or horizontal orientation, a stand for horizontal shelf placement, plus a smoked glass stand for vertical table top use. Whether you’re mounting it on wall or on shelf, as Left and Right, Center or Surround channel speakers the Mythos XTR-50 is ready to look terrific and sound astounding.

The Future Has Arrived

The Definitive Mythos XTR-50 is the first high performance on-wall speaker whose depth matches that of today's ultra-thin TVs. It is a mere 1.5 inches deep when mounted on a wall--shallower than many ultra-thin TVs when they are wall-mounted with conventional mounting hardware. Beyond its utility and clean modern styling, the XTR-50 stands out due to its uncompromising sound quality equivalent to full-size speakers. No other speaker complements your ultra-slim television with more style, versatility and sheer performance.

Delivering life-like sound while still matching the slim styling of the latest generation of TVs

XTDD Technology allows for a compact driver that still delivers dynamic punch and broad dispersion
The Problem: The Thinner the TV, the Worse the Sound

Ultra-shallow TVs are the hottest category in TVs today, thanks to space-saving qualities and elegant design. But it comes at the high cost of significantly poorer sound quality. With speakers that are small and poorly placed (usually on the bottom or on the back of the set), the result is that these ultra-slim TVs offer sound that is good enough for news broadcasts, but far from what is acceptable for sports, movies, and games.

The Solution: Revolutionary XTDD Technology Drivers

In order to equal the total high impact sight and sound experience that high definition digital sources are capable of delivering, a great TV deserves a great audio system. And the only component loudspeakers that can deliver clarity, dynamic impact and life-like realism while matching the slim styling of new generation TVs are the Mythos XTR series.

The secret to the XTR-50's extraordinary performance is Definitive's patent-pending XTDD technology in the anodized Aluminum dome driver. Using state-of-the-art computer modeling and decades of speaker design experience, Definitive engineers eliminated every iota of wasted space, optimized every part, and maximized the moving surface area of a dynamic driver to shrink it down to an impossibly compact dimension without giving up ultra-high performance. The XTDD driver has the kind of dynamic punch, wide frequency range, and broad dispersion that conventional panel-type speakers simply cannot match.

To extend and deepen the bass response of such an impossibly thin speaker the XTDD drivers are pressure coupled to four anodized Aluminum dome bass radiators. The center-mounted tweeter is the same hyper-definition Pure Aluminum Dome Tweeter found in Definitive's award-winning state-of-the-art Mythos ST SuperTower. The total effect is the kind of clarity, dynamic range and extended response that one would expect from a premium-priced normally-sized speaker. Your friends and family with be agog with amazement when they hear the huge rich sound that comes out of the wafer-thin XTRs.

Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Enclosure Saves Space and Improves Performance

Another secret to the XTR-50's astounding thin profile and superior performance is its aluminum cabinet. Specially shaping the enclosure and incorporating stiffing ribs and channels makes the space-efficient aluminum extrusion ultra-rigid and resonance-free. The magnets of the XTDD drivers protrude through the rear wall of the enclosure to further minimize depth.

Ultimate Placement Versatility

The XTR-50 comes supplied with everything you need to place it wherever you want to use it. The XTR-50 can be mounted directly to the wall using the key-hole slots on the back of the enclosure and well-anchored screws. The speaker can be wall mounted using the supplied mounting bracket that allows either vertical or horizontal orientation with a total installed on-wall depth of only 40mm. Two adjustable support feet are supplied in cases where you place the XTR-50 on a shelf as a center channel speaker (horizontal orientation). For vertical shelf or table top placement the XTR-50 comes with a beautiful tempered smoked glass base. Whether you're mounting it on wall or on shelf, the Mythos XTR-50 is ready to look terrific and sound astounding.

def tech is the best for the money, not that these are inexpensive. if I had space for towers, I would prefer them however as i like a more direct bass coming toward the listening area as opposed to the subwoofer. Great sound nonteheless.

I can't properly begin to say how fantastic these speakers are. In addition to sounding better than any speaker I've ever heard, they look fantastic as well. I love that they're wall mountable without having to purchase any additional equipment. Put them up on the wall and they look gorgeous. If you've got a large or even a small room that you want to fill with amazing sound, look no further. Don't let their diminutive size fool you. In a large room (17'x22' 22' foot ceiling) these speakers looked a bit small when I placed them on my wall 6.5ft off the ground. But when I fired up my Yamaha Aventage A820 receiver and played U2's Joshua Tree Album on FLAC streaming from my NAS, I was astounded at how perfect the sound was. Then I played Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back and the opening fanfare sounded amazing.. chills literally went through my body as the fanfare turned to the opening scene on Hoth which lead to the Vader March. After being happy with the movie playback, I went back to my NAS and played some Beethoven Symphony No. 9. It sounded as perfect as it does when played live. Finally, to test it's abilities playing hip hop, I put on some Notorious B.I.G and Some Kanye West..both tracks sounded amazing.. Finally to end it off, I played The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring and was totally immersed by the sound.

These speakers handle everything you can throw at it. Just be advised that their size makes a quality subwoofer a must. I have an older Definitive Supercube that works great with this set up. However for sonic integrity and an overall totally enjoyable experience, you cannot go wrong with these speakers. I've even had non-movie buffs tell me that these two little speakers make going to the theaters unnecessary.. score!

Amazon ran a special where you get two XTR-20BP surround speakers when you buy the three XTR-50 (Front L-R-C) and SC4000 Sub. I have been through a hundred speakers over the last 40 years or so and this Definitive system is right up there with the best speakers, even systems costing several hundred dollars more. I use an Onkyo TX-NR709 to drive the 6 speakers and at any volume this system stays balanced and clean from 20 to 20K Hz.
One thing for sure is that the right and left front speakers and the two surrounds MUST be mounted to the wall for optimal sound reproduction. I definitely recommend the Definitive Technology 5.1 system.
