  1. I'm looking for the 4 wire pinout for White's MX Sport audio port, I've lost my adaptor and want to build a replacement. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
  2. I was reading another thread and folks were saying that the Land-based MX7 was superior to the Water-proof MX Sport. Aren’t they just the same electronics and programs in a different housing? Thanks! Walt
  3. I bought a Mx Sport about 2 years back. I have noticed that the battery box has become "loose" where it attaches to the frame. Has anyone else had a similar problem? and have you managed to fix it? I have bought a second MX that has stopped working with the aim of using its battery box as it seems nice and tight still. But been a bit worried about stripping my machine as i am I am not sure how much damage i mite cause by taking it apart, and i have not found anything on the net yet on the topic. Any help would be much appreciated, thank.
  4. What kind of batteries ya'll use? I used to buy nothing but Duracell rechargeable, then in the last year I couldn't find any. I just bought some Rayovac with a charger, but they don't seem to hold a charge. I charged them, put them in, they showed full charge as I hunted for about an hour, then the next day only see two dots on the power gauge. I recharged them hoping they needed a break in, but they did the same thing. Now I have used them for 3 days, with only two dots showing, they don't seem to be going any lower, but I don't trust them. I just did a search and found a bunch of Duracells, I might of been looking for the same charger I used to have, that died, and couldn't find it. I hate to go spend more on a different brand...I didn't notice until now, the rechargeable's are 1.2 volt, whereas the regular are 1.5 volt, would that make a difference? I don't want a battery pack, at least not a NiCad...
  5. As said I like both the Sport and the Nox face . The great thing about them as you hunt you can really look at the face of each and know what you have notched out . What makes the Nox even better over the Sport is you can notch out one number at a time . Oh I know the Nox has so many fine qualities over the Sport it will never have but like the Nox it has a pretty face . I don’t know why but a pretty face always tugs at my heart strings and a detector is no different. Chuck White's MX Sport Display and Controls Minelab Equinox Display & Controls
  6. I just find it hard to believe I’m the only one on here that has a Sport. If you do I’d like to hear from you. Hey if not it how about the MX 7 . The only two in the news at this time is the Goldmaster 24K that will be out the 1st of August. The other just as well be in fantasy land and that’s the TDI Beach Hunter. If you got a White’s that you know Noah had before you, let’s talk. Chuck
  7. The weather was a little warmer today so I decided to travel about 30 miles to the park where I've found lots of old coins. The area used to be used as a lakeside recreation park in the 1920's and has been very good very to me. I searched for a couple of hours hoping the MX Sport would pull some old coin that my XLT had missed. It seems that the MXS is intended to be swung a little slower than the XLT so I didn't cover as much ground as I'm normally would have. Maybe it was just me trying to pick through a lot of trash and isolate good signals. Anyway, two hours of searching resulted in one recently drop quarter and several really dip digs. After I took a short nap in my camper a fellow came along and asked if I was treasure hunting. He said he had an interest in old coins and showed me his 1964 JFK half dollar. He also pointed to place that he had found a 1927 buffalo nickel that washed out of a bank. He seemed like a nice enough guy although I suspected he was living out of his truck. I told him I had something he might like and went to my truck to get a 1934 buffalo nickel that was in my pouch. I gave it to him to add to his collection and he seemed to really appreciate the gift. After he left I went over to the area he showed me and after about 30 minutes found an Avery 925 silver ring. This was the first ring that I've found with the MXS and I was really excited. I had promised my wife some rings when the MXS arrived and now I was going to keep promise number one. You see, my house is like the White's commercial where the guy finds a ring and gives it to his wife. EVERYTHING that I find is offered to her and she takes whatever she likes. I know she going to like this one. By the way, when your wife is always wearing rings that you find they add greatly to the conversation whenever metal detecting comes up. Thank for looking and as always, H Digs!
  8. I am very impressed with the High trash setting, and am trying to figure out how it is weighted you would think it had low sensitivity and high discrimination therefore would lead to less dept and more iron masking in thick iron areas at homesites but it actually performs to the contrary of my expectations. it goes very deep up to 12 inches and the discrimation level dose not interfere with separating iron from small non ferrous items I was using my equinox in all metal mode and my friend had his MX Sport high trash mode, we where at a colonial homesite, he has getting mixed signal of iron and a high tone and number he dug 5 big hand made square nails up to 6", and was still getting the good signal , when i cam over with the equinox in multi frequency all I was getting was iron, minus signals, with a flash of 11 but no enough to want to dig, and I predicted it was probably a false from a bent nail he kept going and eventually t 10" deep amongst more nails he pulled a penny My equinox never sensed this coin, yet high trash on single frequency spotted it at the onset and stuck to it like glue until it was finally retrieved. I would love to know the set up and weighting behind this mode some i could apply some to my equinox.

  12. Mike Hillis spotted an ad for an apparently waterproof Whites MX - perhaps an MXT variant? NOTE ADDED 7/23/16 - this thread started before the MX Sport was released and is loaded with great information about the detector. However, once released problems developed. Please read the thread at http://www.detectorprospector.com/forum/topic/2307-new-archive-for-whites-mx-sport-threads/ for some of the latest information related to firmware and hardware problems with the MX Sport.
  13. Both the MX Sport and the Equinox 800 are waterproof and that’s about where the two are alike ends. Now if we want to put the detectors that have the option to run in different frequencies then how would you place them in price? I speaking about the ones that have other frequencies but still run only one at a time . Now remember the Equinox is at the top with a price of 899.00 and a true multi frequency. Would you want to slip it in between the Sport and the Equinox in price? Maybe we could lower the price of the Sport and place the ones we’ve been talking about in it’s spot.. Just thinking out loud but everyone has their own opinion. Chuck
  14. I don't go near water, which headphones should I buy? is there a way to set up headphones as wire less? Also best coil at colonial iron filled cellar holes?? Thanks
  15. I need to know the type and size of the screws in the Sport ? Do you know if it can take a higher voltage without smoking it ? If anyone else knows the answer please do reply. When I get finish with my Sport we both may not know it. Chuck
  16. Hello I read somewhere that relic mode is the best to find all items at iron filled sites, as coin and Jewerly and Trash mode, can mask out keepers also how important is Manual ground balance?, as i was told the machine just takes care of it when you turn it on any help is great Thanks
  17. I finally got to use my MX Sport today for the first time. In relics mode it was bouncing all over the place, switched to coin and jewelry and the machine performed better for me. Any advice for the relics mode would be appreciated.

  19. An error in VDI number and quarter/dime reporting has been noted in the early version of the new 6” concentric coil for the White’s MX series. I can’t imagine not digging anything reading in this range anyway, but it is something to be aware of. If nothing else it could affect resale value on the coils so if you have one and this is a problem it can be addressed under warranty once a fix is applied. Stay tuned.
  20. I’ve been trying to find the time to truly give the 6” Six Shooter coil a field test. I had the opportunity several times to give it that test but always fall short of what I wanted. Today I found myself in a school yard that I never hunted before. On the way in to what I would call a very large play ground area. They had to haul loads of sand in because it so deep I found it hard to walk on. I had fired up my Sport as soon as I walk in the play grounds. On the way to that beautiful deep sand that I was thinking it had to be hundreds of coins waiting just for me I past some very small bleachers . I made a swing a two but no luck. That sand around the swings was calling even louder now. I started my hunt around the first set of swings but to my disappointment not one coin did I find. This went on from one play area to another. Oh I’d find a penny now and then but not much I’d say to write home about. I’d walked back to the first swings that I had started from. Standing there I couldn’t believe I hadn’t no more than I did . My thinking it’s got to be someone hunting this school everyday. I’ve never walked away with something looking this good and so little. I was not to be put down so I started detecting again. After a few swings I got a signal within a foot circle all reading a quarter. Sure enough it was a quarter not just one but three. From then on I stayed away from the play ground equipment. I was finding pennies dimes with a quarter here and there. Yes I know any coil could have done what I’ve talked about so far. I was feeling so good on the coins I found so far I was going to hit those metal bleachers on the way out. The Six Shooter coil really was shining bright when I was hunting right under that bottom seat that you can see in the picture.I found more coins next to all that metal than I found in that big play ground. I know it’s more coins to be found under that little bleachers. I would have tried to move it but I think it would have made a change on my out look on life. I think the people detecting before me didn’t have a small coil like the Six Shooter coil like I did. If they had my finds would been lots less. If you don’t have the Six Shooter and you have the MX 7 or the Sport then you don’t know what you’re missing. Chuck
  21. I was in a bookstore and pick up a copy of Western & Eastern Treasure mag. I flipped over to the inside of the front page and low & behold was a big blow up of the MX Sport. You may say what the big deal being I have one. What put me in a state of shock Is when I read Waterproof Headphones Included. The price is the same as it always been. All I can say is people is if you’re looking for a great buy look no further. Look down in the left hand corner of the picture at the number of coils that White’s offer for the Sport. Chuck
  22. Like said when I turn on my Sport I get this frying sound for about 1 1/2 seconds..When I turn off the volume all the way I still get the frying sound coming through. I have other coils but this my first time of hearing this. If anyone else has this new concentric 6” please let me know if you too having the same trouble. I’m really not sure if it is trouble being the coil is working great. Chuck
