White's Electronics MX Sport is new for 2016. It is a descendent of the
hugely popular White's MXT, and ups the game by adding features in a
lighter weight yet waterproof package.
MXT is extremely popular because it does almost everything very well;
coin, relic, jewelry, and nugget detecting. Despite being so versatile
the MXT is also a bargain priced detector with performance rivaling much
more expensive detectors. The MX Sport looks to share and extend this
remarkable versatility. Many people have wished for a waterproof MXT and
White's is delivering with the MX Sport
MX Sport has only just now been leaked via the FCC applications needed
to get any new detector approved for use in the United States. White's
themselves has yet to release official information, so everything here
should be considered preliminary and subject to change. keep an eye out
here for details as they emerge.
MX Sport comes with the 10" round DD coil and has a couple coil options
taken directly from the MXT lineup. These are the 950 round concentric
and 10" x 5.5" DD elliptical. Although these coils are probably the same
coils as used on the MXT they have the special waterproof connector
needed for use on the MX Sport, and so coils will not be directly
interchangeable between the MX Sport and MXT. It does raise the
interesting possibility of an adapter fitting that might make people
with an existing MXT coil selection able to take advantage of that
without buying all new coils. That remains to be seen however.
MX Sport has a great set of target id tone discrimination options. The
items noted below only indicate each target tone category and an item
commonly found in that category. It does not mean that the tone will
mean that exact item will be found.
From the preliminary User's Manual:
MX Sport Tone Identification or Tone ID
pitch or audio frequency produced by each target’s display
identification range can be highlighted with differently pitched sounds,
called Tone Identification or Tone ID. A specific audio pitch reference
for each range provides quick audio ID based on the pitch of the beep
it produces during searching- without looking at the display. When Tone
Identification is in single tone, all accepted metal types produce the
same audio pitch during searching. If the Discrimination is set to
reject a specific target range, that range may not produce a beep of any
pitch. Rejected targets often do not produce any tone (silence).
To Adjust Tone Identification:
1.Press Options and use up & down arrows to select Tone ID.
2.Press + & - to select the type of Tone Identification desired.
3.Press Options to exit or wait 10–15 seconds for the options mode to automatically time out.
Tone ID Settings:
All targets produce the same pitch beep (no tone ID).
Iron targets produce a low-pitched beep; all other targets produce a higher pitched beep.
•Foil & Pull Tabs
•Coins (highest pitch)
•Large Iron (lowest)
•Foil / Small Gold
•Zinc / Indian Head Penny
•Dime – Dollar (highest pitch)
of the 20 Display ID segments (discrimination zones) produce their own
uniquely-pitched beep, starting with iron (the lowest pitch) to Silver
Dollars (highest pitched).
