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.

    • Last Friday, I saw a beetle at my home's carpet. It is very difficult for me to get rid with this beetle and I also saw some eggs were laying on the carpet, which was quite damaging. Then on a recommendation of my neighbor I had called up the Queens NY pest control services, who had used an insect spray and where the experts spray around the floorboards, furniture and on carpets and helped us by preventing the carpet beetles laying their eggs and removing all the food sources.  
    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.
