BOth the 800 and the 600 when in Multi use 5 frequencies. The 800 has the additional ability to run 20 KHz or 40KHz as individual solo frequencies. The Minelab page clearly states that when in Multi, both units run all five frequencies at once.

Look again the 600 runs 3 frequencies and the 800 runs 5 frequencies in multi frequency

According to Minelab's site: https://www.minelab.com/usa/metal-detectors/treasure-detectors/equinox-600

"20 kHz and 40 kHz are not available as single operating frequencies in EQUINOX 600. The Multi-IQ frequency range shown (5 freq.) applies to both EQUINOX 600 and 800."

So in multi, the 600 uses all 5 freqs. as well.

So if the 600 is using all 5 frequencies in multi, why would you need the higher single frequencies? What advantage does the higher single frequency have over the multi which also includes the same frequency? Why would the single perform better than the multi? Thanks. James

The higher in frequency you go, the more sensitive the detector is to smaller pieces of metal (but it is also more effected by the ground matrix as well). Therefore detectors made exclusively for gold run at high (20KHz and above) frequencies.

If you are looking for very small pieces of gold, you'd want to use those higher frequencies, depending upon your environment. From Minelab's manual:

"if you were hunting only for very fine gold jewellery at a
shallow depth, then 20 kHz* or 40 kHz* may give better results in
some detecting environments, such as at a beach on the dry sand."

Thanks for the response. I understand that higher frequencies will find smaller pieces. What I don't understand is why the multi frequency using the same higher frequency will not find those smaller pieces. I accept that the single frequency will do better, since Minelab says so. Just don't understand why. Thanks. James

All the Multi frequency modes are different due to the way the are weighted. With a single frequency all the power is going into that one frequency, whereas with multi the power is split up between the frequencies but not evenly due to the weighting.
