Definitive Technology Mythos ST Loudspeakers
The flat-screen revolution has spawned a lot of dramatic and innovative loudspeakers, many of them different takes on the Definitive Technology Mythos - a family of sleek aluminum speakers that almost single-handedly reinvented the category. Not to be outdone by its emulators, DefTech has now pushed that edge again with its newest Mythos, the ST.
The Mythos ST speaker also deploys a so-called D'Appolito array of two midranges vertically sandwiching a metal-dome tweeter - plus three "racetrack" drivers, obviously chosen to allow a very narrow, low-diffraction cabinet. Only the middle racetrack is active. Its flankers are passive radiators: motor-less, massive, stiffly suspended diaphragms that do the job of a port in a vented system, thus allowing more bass from smaller cabinet volume.
