White's Spectra V3i Metal Detector
One of the Most Powerful Metal Detectors White's Electronics Has Ever Built!
The Spectra V3i is the first production frequency domain Metal Detector to simultaneously use more than 2 frequencies. It is also the first multi-frequency Metal Detector to offer optimized single frequency modes. The Spectra V3i is the first to display the target phase response independently for each frequency. White's will continue to be a leading innovator in Metal Detection technology.
How Does it Work?
What does multi-frequency do for depth and discrimination? The truth is, any time a detector is simultaneously transmitting more than one frequency, the transmit energy must be divided amongst the frequencies. Therefore, a single frequency detector can usually squeeze out slightly more depth than a multi-frequency design at that certain frequency. But this is an advantage only at one frequency, which tends to favor only a narrow range of targets.
This is where the Spectra V3i really shines. The Spectra V3i transmits at 2.5kHz, 7.5kHz and 22.5kHz, making it simultaneously "HOT" on silver, gold and relics. Single frequency detectors are unable to have "Peak Performance" over such a wide range of targets. This is an advantage not only in detecting desirable targets, but also in discriminating out undesirable targets. So the Spectra V3i multi-frequency detectors get excellent depth over a much wider range of targets, and do a better job of identifying targets.
The Spectra V3i can also beat single frequency detectors at their own game! The Spectra V3i has the ability to run in single frequency mode using any of its three frequencies, and the transmit waveform is optimized to put all the energy into that one frequency. So if you want to hunt for only Deep Silver or only Deep gold jewelry, the Spectra V3i is optimized for these tasks.
The Spectra V3i is ready to go and easy to use! We have found the Spectra V3i very easy to use and offer many of the same operating conveniences that White's Metal Detectors are known for. White's engineers have incorporated many useful features like "Live Control" that allows you to quickly make changes to the sensitivity, threshold and more. A new "Zoom" feature allow you to make the text larger or expand a menu. With only six window menus to choose from, learning the Spectra V3i is Easy! You will be quickly navigating your way to finding more and deeper targets in no time at all.

V3i is incredible
Review by Steve T on July 10, 2015
I've had many detectors over the years. My first was a White's Coinmaster. Then I traded that for an Eagle Spectrum. Used that for many years along with the top machines from Fisher, Minelab and Tesoro. It seemed that I always went back to White's over time.
I am now using, for land hunting, the White's V3i. It is by far the most advanced detector for sale today. Yes, there are menus and it is a machine that requires practice to use effectively. Once you get the machine's programming down, it is one very capable metal detector. A detector that can often beat the best of the others.
I use the 5.3 coil for much of the hunting I do. I also like the 950 V rated coil. I also have the Ultimate 13 inch coil and the 10 x 12 SEF. Not sure which coil I want to keep yet. All three are excellent coils. Each has it's advantages and some deficiencies.
The V3i is more adjustable than the E-trac. It also gives a more accurate picture of the information that is needed to decide to dig or not. Better more accurate info than the E-trac or the Fisher f75 LTD 2. The V3i is an excellent all around machine. You can adjust it to hunt just about anywhere. It is complicated but after a while, it becomes second nature to set it up correctly.
If you think this detector is too complicated for you, then it is. But if you know that you can learn how to use this machine the right way, it usually cannot be beat by most any other detector out today.
Versatile, Innovative and American Made!!
Review by Jeffrey V on December 30, 2014
The White's V3i in my opinion is now the most versatile detector on the market. With a few hours of experience and some advanced knowledge, an operator can use this detector as a turn-on and go machine or a machine that is capable of running as 'hot" and deep penetrating as the conditions allow. The advance screen(s) shows all three operating frequencies, has an Analysis Mode and can pinpoint using all three frequencies. The operator can also choose which mode you want to detect in and analyze in. I particularly enjoy the fact that I can create and save my own detecting programs or I can simply modify one of the 10 standard programs included with the V3i. I have returned to some of my favorite "hunting grounds" and have pulled out numerous silver coins from the late 1800's utilizing some custom programing on the V3i. I highly recommend this machine for either beginners or advanced detectorists as either will not be disappointed. There is a large learning curve to get to and become comfortable with the advanced features of this detector, but like anything else, if one puts in the time and effort to learn all about this hobby and how this detector works, the results will be ten fold. I truly cannot say enough about the V3i and all it is capable of doing!!
Review by Jason T on December 23, 2014
What can I say The V3i !! I bought this detector because of all the hype about it and all the options. What I like about it !!
the color screen is great being able to separate targets by the alloy that they might be and the size
makes things exciting when you dig them up !
the unit is very light weight and comfortable you can swing all day
being able to set this detector up to get the best depth on any soil conditions with tweaks to the settings of the programs is great
I like this machine because you can modify so much on it to make it perform better when other detectors are limited.
what I don't like !!
some of the settings and programs on the V3i do not function properly like when you use a program and try to use sizing or another feature when you have a target the features lock up and don't work but they seem to work fine on other programs not sure why this is but it does suck
this machine is extremely complicated to operate and takes a lot of time to master all its functions
NOT A TURN ON AND GO !! I don't recommend this detector to anyone starting out at all this detector could turn someone off from the hobby very fast due to frustration and learning
but once you get the basic's down using this detector is not an issue I would still grab my E-Track over the V3i on any given day in the field
Cant go wrong
Review by Bradley K on May 14, 2013
This machine is the best I have seen. It goes deeper and "knows" what is in the ground. Yes it costs a few extra dollars but worth every penny. It takes some time to get the most out of it but once you understand what every control does you will be finding the deepest finds and dig less trash. A lot to learn but if a person takes the time it will be worth it. Started with a Bounty hunter 505, a great starter machine, and plan to go over those areas again with this to get what it missed.
Review by Devin K on May 14, 2013
This metal detector is way better than i expected, my first time out at the local park i used the coin program and found all coins not a single piece of trash.
