Lost my new DI ducer need cheapest alternative

Post by dondante » Sun Sep 11, 2016 2:31 pm

Long story.. I mounted my helix 7 and while researching how to mount the ducer on my Allison my Ducer was either stolen or thrown away.

So I need something cheap to put in the transducer tray of my Allison until I can save up to buy a new DI transducer. Something for just depth while on a slow plane. What are my options?

Same as I stated on BBC at the start of the posts. XP 9 20 or XP 9 20 T.

Set the Connected transducer setting to HB 83/200 with that transducer.

Either one will work with the Y cable if you are going to put the DI transducer on the jackplate.

Ok here's what I have come up with for the DI replacement. It seems as if it will fit in my tray and do both(depth while running and DI while fishing.)

I can buy the PiranhaMax 197C for $100. On line. From what I can tell it has the same DI transducer as the Helix 7 DI. Correct?

Will I lose any sensitivity shooting through hull using DI?

This option would save me about $100. Vs Purchasing two different ducers.

Yes, same transducer.

The PMax 197c DI does not have 455 kHz 2D sonar like the Helix DI does, but it is still the same transducer.

The XIH 9 DI T is the exact same transducer, it comes with epoxy. Look it up.

Humminbird knows how their stuff works.
