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.

Definitive Technology answered the need for ultra-shallow high-performance loudspeakers to match the latest ultra-thin TVs with the critically acclaimed Mythos XTR Series speakers. Their slim profile, clean modern styling and sound quality equivalent to full-size speakers made the XTR series an instant hit with audio critics and home theater enthusiasts. Now Definitive offers the three-channel XTR-SSA3 L/C/R loudspeaker.

XTR-SSA3: The Perfectly Thin L/C/R Solution
For those listeners who want to enjoy high performance sound but minimize space consumption and clutter, Definitive offers the innovative XTR-SSA3. Simply connect an SSA3 to the left, center and right speaker outputs of any multi-channel receiver for high-performance front-stage reproduction from a single stylish, compact and convenient speaker. The left and right channel arrays of the SSA3 utilize patented SSA technology to vastly widen the stereo image to lifelike proportions. You'll enjoy a sonic image that is as wide as the wall with incredible three-dimensionality. For complete surround sound enjoyment, mate the XTR-SSA3 with matching Mythos XTR-20BP surround speakers or any of Definitive's in-wall or in-ceiling speaker solutions.

Revolutionary XTDD Technology Drivers

The secret to the SSA3's extraordinary performance is Definitive's patented 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.

Six active XTDD drivers are combined with three of 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 will be agog with amazement when they hear the huge rich sound that comes out of the wafer-thin XTR-SSA3.

Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Enclosure Saves Space and Improves Performance
Like the entire Mythos Series, the XTR-SSA models are fabricated from aircraft-grade extruded aluminum styled to perfectly match today's ultra-shallow flat panel TVs. The gloss black finish has been hand polished to a beautiful pearlescent sheen. But there's more than beauty at work, the enclosure is an integral part of the astounding performance. 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-SSA3 comes supplied with everything you need to place it wherever you want to use it-it can be mounted to either a wall or a TV bracket accessory speaker arm with the supplied wall mount bracket. For shelf-mounting in front of or below the TV, the SSA3 comes with clever adjustable feet that can raise the speaker over the TV's protruding shelf stand. It can also be placed on a shelf below the TV and angled up towards your ears via the supplied shelf supports.

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 blockbuster movie 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 the Definitive XTR series.
