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.

Equinox 800
The Equinox is my fifth Minelab detector, and it is the easiest to use. I bought it for it's light weight, but found that it is also usually accurate on whether a target is iron or not. I love Minelabs for their consistent performance and great depth, and the Equinox is no different. This is a great buy for the money. It is stable, easy to learn and works extremely well in trashy areas.

Love this detector. Rich knew how bad I wanted this and when ups didn’t pickup because of snow Rich took it to them the next day so it would get shipped. Thanks to him I got it on a Friday and didn’t have to sit around wishing all weekend. THATS CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!! Still need a couple coils and other things, guess where I’m getting them. Won’t even shop around. With service like that and great prices it’s straight to colonial from now on.

Great metal detector! Only had it about a month. But so easy to use it feels like I've always owned it. Was running a Garrett AT Max. Good machine, but lacks versatility that the Equinox Multi-IQ Technology offers. The Equinox looks great. Works great. Getting impressive depth & sensitivity to small jewelry. Intuitive programming. Simply turn on & go. Or fine tune for greater depth, sensitivity, & discrimination. Would buy again! Anyone interested I have a very nice Garrett AT Max for sale. Comes with Garrett ball cap!!! Final thoughts .... THANK YOU Rich at CMD for all your help. You took a lot of time answering my questions & making sure I never felt like just another customer. Very professional & very personal. Look forward to doing more business with you!

Extremely Happy
I am extremely happy and amazed at the things I have found in places that have been hunted to death with my Garrett AT pro. The only problem I had was the lower shaft upon assembly was off center which caused the control box to be misaligned. I purchased another lower shaft which corrected the problem. Overall, very very happy with both products (Pro-Find 35)! Thank you, Greg

Really enjoying the NOX 800. I had put my name on the waiting list and after 2 or 3 months I happened to be checking my email when I received an email that they were in stock. I took action immediately, got a reply from CMD, sent in my credit card number and furnished my military information for a fantastic discount. A fantastic machine but a rather steep learning curve for me since I am not familiar with the intensity of the latest technology. However, I am having fun and digging lots of coins. Can't wait to take it to the beach and find some gold rings and other jewelry. Great machine. Love it.

Having a lot of fun with the Equinox. Easy to use, The factory modes put you right on targets or you can tweak them to your own preference. Very easy to toggle through the different settings. The sensitivity is incredible, locating small targets deep and using the digital readout lets you get on the targets you want. Highly recommend the Equinox 800. A great machine!! Thanks Rich at CMD for all the great service you have given throughout the years with my other detector and supplies. And still amazed I actually won the Equinox sweepstakes !! Thank you !!

This is a terrific detector and Colonial Metal Detectors goes above and beyond for customers, worked closely with me, helped me get this detector, and has provided great after purchase follow-up. The Minelab Equinox 800 has been taken out two times since purchased, it is sophisticated and will take some learning, but already it has proven itself, finding several Civil War bullets, era coins, all deep signals, between 8-12 inches. It is more than expected and I am very happy to have it. Again, I thank Colonial Metal Detectors and owner Rich for all the help and proactive efforts to get the 800 to me expeditiously.

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.

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.

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!
