Greatness in Compact Form The Mythos Gem XL is the bigger, beefier big brother of the Mythos Gem. The Gem XLs make the distinctive Mythos look - a gorgeous hand-polished, aircraft grade Aluminum enclosure - available in superbly designed high performance compact loudspeakers. Because they are voice-matched with the complete Mythos Series, they're perfect for use as compact, convenient surround speakers in a system made up of larger Mythos main speakers, or as a complete Gem XL-only compact high performance home theater system when combined with a Mythos Three Center Channel Speaker and a SuperCube subwoofer. Mythos Gem XL Speakers feature an easy-to-use keyhole slot for simple wall mounting that looks amazing next to your wall mounted flat screen television. You can also use popular articulating wall mount brackets (available separately). State-of-the-art engineering technology delivers the classic level of Definitive Technology sound quality: wide, dynamic soundstage, pinpoint imaging, and superb realism. Packed into these compact enclosures are proprietary damping technologies that ensure total rigidity, angled mid/bass drivers in PolyStone baffles, and sophisticated Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Networks to more perfectly blend the drivers into a sonically seamless audio environment. Nothing complements your high definition flat screen television with more style, versatility and sheer performance than the beautiful Mythos Series models. Superior Performance Components Each Mythos® Gem XL contains two 4-1/2 inch mid/bass drivers that are angled in opposite directions to broaden the midrange dispersion for the kind of diffuse soundfield sought after by home theater fanatics for surround loudspeakers. Use the Mythos Gem XLs for front and surround channel duties and you'll be rewarded with spacious and enveloping surround effects that will make you feel like you're in the cast of the movie.

The first thing that I noticed, when unpacking these speakers, was the modern, yet simple aesthetic of the brushed aluminum casing. They are quite striking, especially when the grilles are removed and you can see the off-axis angled dual midrange/bass drivers and the tweeter in between. This angling seems to add a certain flexibility to the available positioning options allowing the gem to do the job of front, or surround speakers. Though the Mythos Gem XLs are relatively compact, they do have quite a heft to them, which makes them feel quite substantial. As far as mounting goes, the Gem XLs allow for several options: the included keyhole-type wall mounting brackets, there is a threaded insert for a pivoting wall mount (the Definitive Technology Pro-Mount 90 - Pair (Black) works great with these), or you could opt for the rather nice looking...
I'm currently using 4 of these to fill in holes in my surround sound system, where the rest of the speakers are in-wall and in-ceiling (using old Pioneer Elite speakers). I needed to come close to tonally matching the Pioneer Elites (no longer sold!), and these have specs that matched as well as any (sensitivity, crossover, materials, etc.)

Benefit of these speakers vs. a lot of other speakers is the depth of the speaker -- these are NOT super deep, unlike many "bookshelf" style speakers.
Currently these make up the rear left/right channels and the "wide" left/right channels. I might eventually add a pair of these for the "rear high" channels, if I ever get a pre-amp that supports 13.2.6 :).
My only wish is that these speakers had been available in white (I know that other sizes of this speaker, and maybe even this speaker had...
I will start off by saying that I currently own Definitive Technology speakers so I may be biased. I bought a pair of these to replace some older Def Tech surrounds. These play loud and appear to be able to handle just about anything you can throw at them. Are they pricey? Yes, but as the saying goes, you get what you pay for. I will be replacing the front speakers with Mythos 10s to complete my speaker upgrades.
