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.
The Definitive Mythos XTR-60 is the step-up larger version of the original XTR speaker, the highly acclaimed XTR-50. The XTR family speakers are the first high performance on-wall speakers whose depth matches that of today’s ultra-thin TVs at a mere 1.5 inches deep, 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-60 stands out due to its uncompromising sound quality equivalent to full-size speakers.
The XTR-60's smaller brother the XTR-50 was honored with the Best of Innovations award for the High Performance Audio category at CES 2010
Definitive’s engineers have unleashed their awesome creativity and brain power to develop this revolutionary line of 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.
Revolutionary XTDD Technology Drivers
The secret to the XTR-60’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 bit 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 four active 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-60’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.
Ultimate Placement Versatility
The XTR-60 comes supplied with everything you need to use place it wherever you want to use it. The XTR-60 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-60 on a shelf as a center channel speaker (horizontal orientation).
