Splitting a Transducer

3 posts in this topic

Forgive my ignorance but I would like to have a graph on the front of my boat as well as on the console. I am either going to hook another bracket and set of cables in the front of the boat and move my sonar when necessary or buy a 2nd to have both available at the same time. Here lies my question.

They would use the same transducer, so I would like to share the transducer. There is no need to run an extra transducer when there is one already there. I see Lowrance has a spliter for about $50 but does anyone know of a another/cheaper way. I am not saving anything because the splitter costs as much as the transducer although it saves me from drilling additional holes or running it off my trolling motor.

The other question is with a splitter can both graphs be used at one time since they are coming from one source?

Any info on this subject would be appreciated.

No you can't run both units at the same time off one transducer. The puse is sent from the display head, so both units will be not able to read anything. If you run one transducer off tho transom and one off the bow trolling motor you may still run into problems unless the two units run off frequencies that are at least 50 hz different.

    • You almost need to put a guy in his face and play the rest of the PK 4 on 3.
    • About time!!! Stalock on his way up...hope they play him soon.
    •   Tiger meat on a cracker is delicious.    Yes, "may". I don't have a link to his page and I haven't been to it in years so I have no idea.I'll admit that I'm more than likely wrong and just jaded from years of working in internet marketing but I'm not gullible enough to take the word of random internet peeps. Do you have a link to his page so I can verify?
    • Also check out "straw bale gardening".  
    •   My folks liked them.  The Hubbards are large and the flesh is quite thick.   Plants in late april is jumping the gun.  Liable to freeze, even with global warming.   reasonable chance of frost there until middle of may.  You want the dirt to be warm, so think of them like tomatoes or cucumbers.   seeds rot in cold soil.    frost kills plants
    • Speaking of desperate snowflakes...... check this out.   Can't wait for the hearings on Cspan.... Legogate.   Or maybe batgate....   (no I have no idea of the credibility of "heatstreet" so read at your own risk) (owned by dow jones, so part of the mainstream media at least sort of) https://heatst.com/politics/democrats-to-investigate-after-trump-official-makes-lego-batman-joke/  
    •   I doubt it.  Its hard to go back and even if you did most of the damage has already been done.  Besides it would be admitting failure, not many people like to do that and I've seen no evidence that ownership believes it did fail  Perhaps to them it didn't, with 2 sites they might be taking in more money now due to more ad spots to sell.  Although the question is longevity, do ad dollars start to suffer as users leave and content dwindles?  For awhile its not hard to pump up the stats and make the site look good to advertisers with number of visits and page views, etc.  However, if an advertiser looked at the site for themselves its easy to see all the sub forums that haven't had a new post in months or that most of the views and clicks are coming from threads with Trump in the title.   Forums as a whole are also LONG past their prime and are quickly fading out.  Facebook groups and other social media are taking over.  Why log into many different forums when you can simply log in to facebook and have everything right there along with all of your real world connections?  Advertisers are likely to be focusing more of their ad dollars on the platform as time goes by.

    • The pipeline being built is a good thing. Gutting regulation for the sake of gutting regulation is stupid - and that seems to be his tactic. Some regulations are necessary. The "illegal flow" had been declining for years; attributing the continuation of that arc to Trump isn't really sensible. 
    •  Ooh landed that one in 4 minutes.     P.S. Of course you haven't yelled at me you only go after the defenseless.  We all know how bullies work.
