Introducing Multi-IQ

Multi-IQ is Minelab’s next major innovation and can be considered as combining the performance advantages of both FBS and VFLEX in a new fusion of technologies. It isn’t just a rework of single frequency VLF, nor is it merely another name for an iteration of BBS/FBS. By developing a new technology, as well as a new detector ‘from scratch’, we will be providing both multi-frequency and selectable single frequencies in a lightweight platform, at a low cost, with a significantly faster recovery speed that is comparable to or better than competing products.

How does Multi-IQ compare to BBS/FBS?

Multi-IQ uses a different group of fundamental frequencies than BBS/FBS to generate a wide-band multi-frequency transmission signal that is more sensitive to high frequency targets and slightly less sensitive to low frequency targets. Multi-IQ uses the latest high-speed processors and advanced digital filtering techniques for a much faster recovery speed than BBS/FBS technologies. Multi-IQ copes with saltwater and beach conditions almost as well as BBS/FBS, however BBS/FBS still have an advantage for finding high conductive silver coins in all conditions.

An amazing detector for the money, and very happy with my purchase. You can operate this detector on default settings and be perfectly satisfied, or if you like to do so, you can tweak the settings to your heart's content to increase your level of familiarity with it. Colonial Metal Detectors was a pleasure to work with!

Great Service, Great Product!
I was able to pick up the Equinox 800 about one month ago, made possible by CMD's waitlist method! Despite being later in the evening, Rich was quick to respond to my emails and coordinate a fantastic military discount which was the icing on the cake! Shipping was fast and the product was packaged very well. Overall I am impressed with the customer service I received from the CMD team and Rich. This detector is my first "big" coin/relic detector that I have purchased--it replaced a Garrett Ace 250 that I had been using. I've also owned a couple of Minelab's GP/GPX series detectors. In the month I've had the Equinox 800, I have thoroughly enjoyed using it. My confidence with target identification increases with every minute I spend using the Equinox, but being a new machine with limited information on the internet I dig most targets that sound good and/or border desirable target identification. I am amazed with the recovery speed of this detector. I am able to pick out coins in trash infested parks like you wouldn't believe! In one swing I can ID multiple trash targets but still pick out a distinct coin signal. Being able to customize the settings, tone ranges, and tone pitch has been very useful. I am loving every second I am out with the Equinox 800 and I am very happy to have purchased it from CMD.

Great Machine
I ordered my Equinox 800 on a Monday and by Wednesday I had it, Thanks to Rich for fast service! I've been waiting for this machine after reading tons of reviews and watching videos. I have only been swinging the Nox for a few hours but am impressed so far. The first stop was to a yard that I must of detected for 50 hours so far, this machine pulled 3 Nickels out as well as a few clad pennies from an iron infested patch, very impressed. The learning curve is going to be quite wide but I am confident this is a fast and deep machine.
