HB plug on Lowrance xducer???

3 posts in this topic

I bought a new Skeeter. The boat came with a Lowrance X135 with a ducer epoxied in the bilge area. The unit worked well at high speed on the maiden voyage. I pulled the X135 out of the dash and installed a HB side imaging unit. I left the Lowrance ducer in and epoxied a HB ducer just in front of it (in case I sell the boat, etc... the Lowrance ducer could still be used). I also hung a SI ducer off the jackplate for SI function.

Yesterday (2nd time out with the boat) I was not able to get a good high-speed reading on the HB. So here is my question. Since both units operate on 200 kHz, and both only have 3-pins would there be any issues with cutting off the Lowrance plug end from the Lowrance ducer, and soldering on the HB plug? Interference issue? Anything else to be aware of? This would only be for downlooking, high-speed use. I would leave the HB unit on the 200 kHz setting for this usage.

Thanks for your time.

I would think the Bird ducer is set up for that brand graph and that the Low ducer wouldnt work but I could be wrong.

Them Bird ducers can use a little work if ya ask me. The plastic ducer cradle is junk. At least it is on mine and I think they are all the same arent they.

I think that is how Universal Sonar on Minn Kota works - strictly on kHz???

    •   Yes, he lives in Russia. Good job, but no one disputed that fact.     Or, from your own article:         1. That's not even the point I was trying to make with that quote. 2. You do realize that Gary Johnson is no longer Governor of New Mexico, right? 3. The last political office he ran for was as a Libertarian.     I OWE you nothing but if we ever found ourselves in the same drinking establishment, I would be happy to buy a couple rounds.   Now. Tell me more about these butt-hurt Texans? Or are you just being a giant hypocrite?     
    • sorry for late reply !! hope your trip went well. We have done great this year amazing for numbers and always a few big ones.
    •     As NYT reports, the president of the 'Yes California' movement lives in Russia.     https://www.nytimes.com/2017/02/21/us/yes-california-calexit-marinelli-russia.html?src=twr&smid=tw-nytimes&smtyp=cur&_r=1   RUSSIA !!! Must be buddies with trump and putin .. (OH, MY...)   And gary Johnson (liberatarian hero) is in fact a republican.   WOOOOOO!!!!!   That's two beers you owe me.
    •   You could have just looked at him for starters.     Nothing to see here, probably just some "Christians" making fun of autistic folks.

      I swear some of you must be emotionally attached to these laws because there is no logic in your thinking, the same kind of thinking that has wasted a trillion dollars and has yet to solve a single issue. The lottery has better results than the war on drugs, at least a few winners have emerged over the years.
    •   In our local paper they highlighted a local that is an author and wrote a book on what he did for his weight loss...he would eat good for 6 days of the week and then have 1 splurge day where he could eat what he wanted and doing this reset his metabolism and he lost a lot of weight.
    •   I was thinking the same I rarely use my own wheeler but when I do I like my auger on the wheeler. I thought about buying a mount but can't stand spending that much cash on one. I was thinking of making one but that's a project for the summer months. Sorry I can't help.
    •   If that's what you want to do go for it. You're the one who will pay the consequences.   Should the guy in this video chug a bottle of Jack? Probably not but it's legal.    
    •   Maybe phone service and internet will be down. Yes! Living off grid. I like it. Can we even call it "winter" anymore? I mean seriously where's the days when getting a foot plus of snow wasent uncommon. A lot of people like these warm snowless winters. I hate it! Thanks globle warming!
