    I know with a lot of detectors you need to adjust and tweak depending on soil conditions and many other factors.How often do you need to adjust your DFX settings? Do you have a tweaked program that you hunt with all the time. Do you stick with the stock programs mainly?

    1st - I noticed this was your very first post - so, Welcome Aboard renegah! You didn't list your state (or country) in your profile. So, you might consider jumping over to Sub-Forum: Select Your Area.... for information (i.e., clubs, hunts, finds, legends, maps, etc.) directly related to your state (or country).
    2nd - You might consider jumping over to METAL DETECTING FORUM > BRANDS WHITE'S and doing a quick search - found a bunch of threads talking about Adjusting Sensitivity...

    Hello 49er12,

    You can try lowering the A.C Sensitivity or the Pre-amp Gain (1-4 settings). If you lower the two setting too much, much depth will be lost, but you may have to forfeit depth for stability.

    Good Luck!

    U no what I use this hi pro option, an old timer introduced that setting choice, this machine is great with quarters but other coins as well, how often I use stock programs not much lately I like this here and the tones, this machine is still amazingly good. And as far as interfering, it only comes with power lines that I notice simply goes wacko. So that’s why I ask what 1 or 2 adjustments to make I’m no expert on anything appreciate the response

    Amekassa12,

    I adjust the machine settings to the conditions I'm hunting, usually only a few. I start with a stock program and modify as needed. I also use this method with the V3i. Just because there are many settings only few need to be adjusted for a new area. Good Luck!

    49er12,

    Yes. I run my DFX and V3i rather "hot", but lowering the AC or pre-amp down will help. I would not go below 2 on the pre-amp. Good Luck.
