Hi, I have a question about the 705 x-terra on prospecting mode. i have the dd 18.75 coil and i realize you can adjust the threshold tone. when i hit on iron should my detector make a deep low tone or a sort of high tone? because i get a high tone.
Page 70 in Randy's E-book addresses your answer far better than anything in the factory manual.

Questions like this should be asked in the open forum.
In part, because you're more likely to get a variety of answers, in part because some there might have the same or similar questions, and frankly...it's not a "frequently" asked question.

I purchased my Xterra 705 before I really knew that much about it. I had decided on a Garretts AT 350 until my local MD dealer took the time to explain several different detectors features. I Was taken by the Xterra's ability to change frequently by just changing coils. After he offered me a great price on the 705 I put it in layaway. I returned home and started researching my purchase on another forum. After making a comment on a thread thanking them for explaining a question on coils I Was told about this site. Now I can say this is the most informative site I have found. Thanks Tom!

Ok I know this post is old but I have a question . Here in Michigan my exterra 70 detector sits for six months so every spring I get out the manual to refresh myself . I noticed in all three patterns the # 48 is rejected . Why and what would be rejected by it ,

Ok , thanks. Seems strange that iron would be on both ends of the screen scale of our units. It's no big deal I was just wondering.

Thanks for the reply , your friend Doug.
Ps: if only spring would get here, 6 month of no detecting is a bummer.

Hey Doug, you would likely benefit greatly from downloading Randy's FREE e-book "Understanding Your Xterra". There's a ton of good useable information in it, including an explanation of what Randy call his theory of "Circular Discrimination" that you might find interesting.

That e-book is like the Bible for Xterra users. Everyone that owns an Xterra should have it.

Thanks but I already did , all 96 pages and in slide in clear folders and in a hard cover binder. I also did the same withe the OEM manual so I don't wear ny OEM out.
Now if someone could sprinkle gold nuggets here in Michigan for me . I truer envy those of you that are able to go out into the desert for nuggets . That is on my bucket list but I think my time will run out before that happen lol.
Thanks, Your Friend; Doug
Ps, hate how the board slowed down in winter.
