Definitive Technology Mythos XTR-60 Ultra Slim Center Channel Speaker - XTR60

The Future Has Arrived!

Science fiction films have long featured impossibly thin video screens mounted on walls or floating in air. While the floating-in-air technology might be some time off, super shallow video screens are here now. TVs less than 2 inches thick are in stores now and more are on their way. If you have an ultra-thin TV you’re going to want to use ultra shallow speakers that match.

The Definitive Mythos XTR-40 is a 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 their factory sanctioned mounting hardware. Beyond its utility and clean modern styling the XTR-40 stands out due to its uncompromising sound quality equivalent to full-size speakers.

Definitive’s engineers have unleashed their awesome creativity and brain power to develop a line of revolutionary speakers that have the high definition detail and dynamic range performance of large speakers yet are a mere 1.5” deep. No other speakers complement your ultra-slim television with more style, versatility and sheer performance.

The Thinner the TV, the Worse the Sound

Ultra-shallow TVs are the hottest category in TVs today. People love their space-saving qualities and elegant design. But it comes at a high cost—significantly poorer sound quality. The speakers in these ultra-thin TVs are small and poorly placed (usually on the bottom or on the back of the set) not even facing the listener. The result is sound that is good enough for news broadcasts but far from what is acceptable for sports, movies and action/adventure programming. Imagine the letdown when you return home after seeing Avatar or similar audio/visual blockbuster in a Dolby Digital cinema and turn on your TV to watch a DVD with cheap 2-inch speakers providing the sound!

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 component 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 Definitive's XTR family.

Revolutionary XTDD Technology Drivers

The secret to the XTR-40’s extraordinary performance is Definitive’s patent-pending XTDD technology 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 audio fidelity! The XTDD driver has the kind of dynamic punch, wide frequency range and broad dispersion that flat vibrating membrane 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 two 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-40’s astounding thin profile and superior performance is its aluminum cabinet. By specially shaping the enclosure and incorporating stiffing ribs and channels, we’ve made 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. A thermally conductive gasket seals the enclosure/magnet interface and transfers heat from the driver’s rare-earth magnet to the enclosure, making the whole enclosure a giant heat dissipater! And everyone knows that a cool driver is a happy, reliable driver.

Is It Thin Enough?

With TV manufacturers advertising TVs with 1.25 inch and even less than 1-inch depth one might wonder if the XTR-40 is shallow enough to look good next to these impossibly thin TVs. The answer is a resounding YES. First, the advertised depth of a TV is the depth without the hardware necessary to mount the TV on a wall. For example the leading brand of LED TVs is advertised as being 1.2 inches deep. But the wall mount hardware brings the installed depth to 1.75-inches, .25-inches deeper than the XTR-50 installed on-wall. Should TVs get even thinner the XTR-40’s design is up to the challenge. The XTR-40 is bow shaped with knife-edge sides. The sides are less than an inch from the wall so even if TVs get shallower; the XTR-40 will be up to the task.

Ultimate Placement Versatility

The XTR-40 can be mounted directly to the wall using the key-hole slots on the back of the enclosure and well-anchored screws. If you choose, 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-40 on a shelf as a center channel speaker (horizontal orientation). The Mythos XTR®-40 is ready to look terrific and sound astounding.

This award-winning compact package of innovative brilliance has it all—drop-dead gorgeous styling, ultimate placement versatility and big speaker sound quality.
