Clearly by all your video's the preferred model is the 4500.

I know this is an old topic but I have a question for anyone who can provide an answer.

Regarding the front end gain mod and just how far it can be tuned up -

Does the increased stability of a double D coil allow the front end gain to be set higher without incurring increased noise as would be the case with a mono?

Yep still here Wes. Not much happening in the North, too much water around.

Hi filternozzle17,

Check the available products on the DetectorMods web page. There is an interference filter that may help.

Herb do you have your soil timings switched to enhance?

Hi Herb, sorry about the late reply mate. Was out having a crack for a couple of weeks and then back at work catching up on everything that was waiting for me.

Mate there maybe considerable differences in ground mineralization between our areas. I can get the front end gain up to half way on average with the RX gain around 9-11 and stablizer a couple of notches higher again (sometimes a couple of notches lower).

When I have the coil quiet I re-check now and then with my tester to be sure everything is still working but also to see if I can crank up the front gain a little more. Obviously when it gets a little noisy I back it off a little.  My failing is that I'm so keen to get going I sometimes rush through the tuning. This caught me out on the first morning of my recent trip. Geared up I moved away from the 4x4 and turned on the 4500. After it booted up and settled down I ran through the back Led settings and then went to pull my tester from my pocket to fine tune further only to discover I had left it in the car. Deciding I won't need it, I headed off anyway and after about 30 minutes of very quiet coil operation I turned the front end gain up a little. Still very quiet I turned it up more, and more until it was at maximum and still the coil hummed quietly. Sensing things were not right I walked back to the car grabbed the tester which is a 11grm piece and at only a few centimeters away the coil could not detect it. Fearing the detector had died I sat on a log and went through all settings in detail which this time around included the front switches. Thankfully I discovered I had somehow knocked it into cancel mode and therefore easily fixed. A quiet coil is what we aim for but now and then I'll try and crank it up a little to see if I can increase capacity and if its too noisy, back it off. If I hadn't done this on my last trip I would not have suspected there was a problem and could have wasted a whole day.

Anyway, there are few setting combinations to try Herb and the ground in some areas may just to noisy. Have looked at Woody's suggested settings on this site?

Cheers,

Peter

Hi Joeboy,

I bought the Nugget Finder 17" Evolution model for my modded 4500 and find it very stable in the field. Detectormods have done some truly great development work in increasing capability of these older model detectors. Any improvement in coil performance is an opportunity to push further the capabilities of these mods.

Regards,

Peter

Woody will the old SD's also benefit from new components?

Maybe Detector Mods should look at developing alternatives Woody.

Look forward to seeing the results in the next vid Woody.

Woody is the latest mod a result from findings on this testing?

15
And to add Wes's question. What cost are we looking at for the already modded 4500 and 5000's?

Peter
