Get to know this product.

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 five-channel XTR-SSA5 surround bar loudspeaker.

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
Mythos XTR-SSA5: The Perfectly Thin Surround Solution
  • If you want all the thrills of five-channel surround sound without the need for separate rear speakers, Definitive Technology has the solution: the XTR-SSA5
  • The SSA5 incorporates Spatial Array, a patented technology that optimizes the spatial presentation of five channels to create the illusion that you are surrounded by five separate high performance speakers. Enjoying a superb sounding audiophile-grade surround experience has never been more convenient
  • Simply connect an SSA5 to any multichannel receiver and powered subwoofer to enjoy enveloping surround sound without the bother of running wires and finding locations for rear speakers
Revolutionary XTDD Technology Drivers
  • The secret to the SSA5'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
Aircraft-Grade Aluminum Enclosure Saves Space and Improves Performance
  • Like the entire Mythos Series, the 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-SSA5 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 SSA5 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
