    If you have a setting that works for your area, just try changing one setting at a time until it gets unstable and then back it of. Then go to another setting and tweak it until it gets unstable. Just keep doing this until you get your hottest settings. I guess thats what your wanting is a deep hot program.

    OK man, clam down, we are here to help. Now get a and try this. Load the coin program. Go to basic adjustments menu, use the down arrow till you get to mix mode. Press enter. The screen now reads MIX MODE on.
    Change nothing else. This will be the starting point for further changes.
    Squeeze the trigger and start hunting.

    Get back to us and let us know how that XLT responds.

    Squeezing the trigger loads the change and puts the machine in search mode. You could hunt with the trigger squeezed, that would be all metal mode. And that does add depth. I do not recommend it for most hunting scenarios.
    I should of said squeeze the trigger once.

    But the example above, of adding MIX MODE will also give some depth. I was hoping to establish a starting point for experimenting with finding deep objects.

    Re: Spectrum XLT Mixed Mode

    Load your Coin and Jewelry settings and make the following changes:


    BASIC ADJUSTMENTS COIN & JEWELRY
    TARGET VOLUME 60
    AUDIO THRESHOLD 12
    TONE (AUDIO FREQ) 231
    AUDIO DISC ON
    SILENT SEARCH OFF
    MIXED MODE ON
    A.C. SENSITIVITY 70
    D.C. SENSITIVITY 35
    BACKLIGHT OFF
    VIEWING ANGLE 25
    PRO OPTIONS
    AUDIO RATCHET PINPOINT OFF
    S.A.T. SPEED 5
    TONE I.D. ON
    V.C.O. ON
    MODULATION OFF
    G.E.B / TRAC AUTO TRAC ON
    TRAC VIEW OFF
    AUTO TRAC SPEED 8
    AUTO TRAC OFFSET 0
    TRAC INHIBIT ON
    COARSE G.E.B. AUTO
    FINE G.E.B. AUTO
    DISCRIMINATIION DISC EDIT / BLOCK EDIT
    Reject -95 - -31
    Accept -30 - -01
    Reject +00 - +02
    Accept +03 - +94
    Reject +95
    LEARN ACCEPT OFF
    LEARN REJECT OFF
    RECOVERY SPEED 30
    BOTTLECAP REJECT 2
    DISPLAY
    VISUAL DISC ON
    ICONS ON
    V.D.I. SENSITIVITY 80
    D.C. PHASE OFF
    GRAPH AVERAGING ON
    GRAPH ACCUMULATE ON
    FADE RATE 7
    SIGNAL
    TRANSMIT BOOST ON
    TRANSMIT FREQ 4
    PREAMP GAIN 3

    This will get you a stable Coin and Jewelry settings that employs Mixed Mode. It will get silver dimes at 8" and silver quarters at 10", no problem. It is a variation of the DFX settings that I use, and I run Mixed Mode / 15Khz. If you find its "too hot" for your area, set PAG to 2.

    You can tell deep ferrous targets when your threshold "nulls" (goes quiet). However, if you employ this tactic, you are running the risk of missing a deep coin. On the DFX, the SpectraGraph build up is a big help in determining the target composition, but with the XLT, you are better advised to "dig when in doubt".

    Remember too, that Mixed Mode is going to be a bit "noisy", because you are hearing BOTH the All Metal AND Disc channels. The All Metal channel audio will be the source of most of your chatter ....

    Hope this is helpful. Good luck and good hunting. Da FoX
