Mythos Xtr-50 Wallspeakers Thanks the Aluminum Diet for Its Slim Figure

by Lambert Varias

How slim? The Mythos XTR-50 by Definitive Technology wowed folks at CES 2010 with it’s 1.5-inch thick body. The secret? Aluminum. The Mythos XTR-50 wall-mounted speaker has an “aircraft-grade” extruded aluminum enclosure, two 3.5″ anodized aluminum drivers with their patent-pending “XTDD technology”, four 3.5″ aluminum dome bass radiators and a 1″ pure aluminum dome tweeter.

As the picture above shows, the Mythos XTR-50 is meant to accompany the super thin LED TVs that are starting to come out of the market. But even if you don’t have equally slim TVs, the Mythos XTR-50 ‘s size make it a good bet for people with limited floor areas. When mounted to a wall, the Mythos XTR-50 has an overall frequency response of 92Hz – 30kHz. It has a sensitivity of 92dB, and an impedance of 8 ohms. The recommended amplifier power for driving the XTR-50’s is 20 to 100 watts per channel.

Check out Definitive Technology for more information and pics. If you’re already convinced that you want one, then it means that I’m a good salesman.  The Mythos XTR-50 is available online, but only for US citizens. It sells for $700 (USD) at both Amazon and Crutchfield.

    So when are they coming out with a 1-inch thick subwoofer to go with it? :)

    I watched one of those house of the future episodes and I like their wall speakers much better. They put the actual speaker magnet in the wall and the wall becomes the speaker.
