XP Deus Settings For Littered Places (Tips From Experienced Detectorists)
Unlike other metal detectors with preinstalled search programs and not very much freedom in changing settings, the XP Deus metal detector allows itself to be adjusted for use on any soil and any detecting conditions to the maximum. Of course, the depth of the detector is not the deepest, but the depth is not important where other metal detectors do not see certain objects, for example – medieval silver, gold, and small ornaments. All large coins are already found with the simplest metal detectors, and so we have nothing left to do but to look for small silver coins in the fields and in littered places. And therefore will our subject today be what settings to use with the Deus for littered places.
There are littered places where we routinely process and remove signal after the signal, but there is also such littered places where the iron is mixed with corks and other debris in the fields, and among these objects, we need to find useful finds.
If we dig in a field with the HF coil, like mine, and the field is abundantly littered with iron and other rubbish, then I recommend using the following program, which I called “PARK”:
On the basis of the 3rd program, Deus Fast, we do some small changes that can vary from terms and location:
Discrimination: 4.2 (pro – 3 tones, pro in tones: set this according to your hearing, I put 202 Hz, 559 Hz and 835 Hz)
Sensitivity: 93 (with the white coil there are no settings in the pro)
Frequency: 14.4 kHz
Iron volume: 3
Reactivity: 2.5 (pro – noise 1)
Audio Response: 5-6 (pro – sound overload 1)
Now to ground settings: Tracking, soil sensitivity 5 (depends on your detecting location). Manual at G.B. 88.
This program allows us to easily work in a littered field and not lose depth, which is very important in such places.
There is another option. You can use the basic setting “Deus fast”, it is quite good for trash. But you can make some more changes in it:
Sensitivity – 90
Audio Response – 2, noise – 1
Iron volume – 3
Audio response -4, Sound overload -1
Discrimination – 4.0
It is better to adjust each of the settings on the spot based on your detecting and field conditions and the degree of littering.
Now let’s talk about the signal audio response. The versatility of XP Deus is just one of the bonuses, another bonus is the settings the audio response for different purposes. Very often, after an hour or two we start to skip some signals. While thinking about something or looking at something, anything can happen. The signals are lost, the concentration drops, and finds are skipped. It’s simple. To prevent this from happening, it’s better to adjust the audio response in the Deus.
For example, take 5 tones and my personal settings:
800 – excellent silver signal.
Always adjust the frequency tones to your taste, but it’s better to make significant differences between them so that you can immediately catch useful signals by ear!
If there is anything to share and you have your own version of XP Deus settings, then write it in the comments!
And what is “Threshold” on the Deus please ?
Yep, there is no threshold, but audio response!
On the second program you give, 2 audio response settings…the first should be reactivity i think 😉
Why such a low reaction setting in Iron infested site? Usually I set at 3 or 4
Because I don’t like to lose depth on such sites, sometimes it brings you good finds which our colleagues have missed.
Wouldn’t it be better to use a higher frequency?
