Equinox coil questions

What size coil comes standard? It looks similar in size to Se Pro/eTrac/CTX coil. The coil is different, I spy 2 extra stiffening ribs center and the other 4 repositioned. Also noticed they flattened the front/rear of the coil. Anyone know how many pins the coil cable connector has??

Minelab says launching with 6 inch, 11 inch, and 15x12. At least 3 frequencies in multi-frequency but they are not releasing details on that yet. I can anticipate swapping it onto an S shaft for ergonomics and so the cable isn't sticking up in the air so far between the handle and shaft. I'm wondering if there are any electronics in the coil hence my question on the number of pins on the coil cable connector.

Do the coil ears look strong on these? a potential weak point on the standard x-terra coils, especially if it was cold and you accidentally leant on your detector

Yes, it looks beefed up considerably vs the previous coil shell design.

It comes with the 11 inch as standard and the others are extra .

The 600 version has 3 freqs and multi and the 800 has 5 freqs and the multi . I would think that the fact that the 600 has 3 and multi will mean that it will operate all 3 in multi and that means the higher model 800 will use all 5 it has in multi freq. Logical i think.



Uses = Minelab E.Trac , Minelab Explorer 11 (might sell) , Minelab Explorer XS , Minelab Equinox 800 x 2 (ordered) , Garrett Probes , Gray Ghost/ Nugget Busters

I had read on one of the forums that the detector does not use the complete range of frequencies in multi-mode. You pick the type of hunting mode you want to run the machine and then it detector picks the best kHz to run in multi. For example the 40 kHz mode will be on for beach mode but not on relic mode. Of course none of the info can be confirmed until the machine is out,

I still believe all freqs will be used , especially in beach mode. But if it works on the salt wet well then i will be happy .

If it works in salt water and wet salt sand I'll probably sell the CTX.

doesnt matter what you read on another forum. Minelab wont likely even reveal those details after its released. They've never officially disclosed exactly how FBS or FBS2 operates. I'm certainly not putting any faith in the words of a random person on the internet

I did not say i read it on a forum. I have been told by someone that it is as above. 3 freqs on the 600 and 5 on the 800 with the 40 also used for prospecting. 1 or more programs may be preset as single freq but i bet as i have seen on the videos you can choose which freq or freqs you can use . Like the Deus but with the ability to use all and i reckon the beach mode will have that as standard .
I wont bother saying anything if i think its not true and aren't forums about sharing thoughts and info ?

sorry nuke, that wasnt a response to you. I was responding to CCadrin's post, because he was quoting you in his post, it pulled you quote in along with his quote.

The point I was trying to make on the number of frequencies is that it may not be all of the frequencies that the machine has an individual choice. It may be a subset. As people stated we never really knew what BBS and FBS is really doing. Just as long as it works we are all happy. The videos that I saw so far is impressive.
