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???

    •   Well may be instead of buying a few over priced pizza's and eating them while you're sitting on the internet Beoshing about others doing something with their time and money you can get off your atheist ars and go help the folks with a few blanks! Freeking Hypocrite much!

    • We're not setting any records but managing to decoy a few. Struggling with a new gun that I'm too stubborn to set aside. Just happy to be out at all with what I've been through. 
    •   Dave- I'm as disillusioned as you with regards to our two main parties and I've been known to lurk around the edges of the Libertarian camp. What keeps me from coming all the way in is silly stuff like this.   You're as delusional as an altar boy that thinks the priest wants to be his "friend" if you believe churches are going to fix anything. They never have and they never will.    If churches help the poor, why are there so many poor people?   Here are a couple great examples of christians helping poor people- 1- A group from my community just got back from a mission trip to some central american rathole where 27 men that paid over $2000 apiece to go 1500 miles to build what were more or less 3 garages for some poor community. A little time for sightseeing and photo taking and they are back home with tons of pretty pictures proud of themselves for doing gods work. 2- The wife just bought 3 overpriced crappy pizzas from my niece to fund her New Orleans mission trip. A bunch of kids will raise several thousand dollars from suckers like me, take a nice trip somewhere I never went as a kid, see some sights and paint a couple houses.   Meanwhile, we live in a county where real, abject poverty actually exists. Students of mine go to bed hungry, don't have enough blankets in their house and live in homes one wouldn't leave their dog in.
    • Last week I got my two Helix Mega in. I a lot of people ask me how I install them and how to avoid interference. Follow these tips and interference will be a thing of the past.  
    • You are a confused individual , you might not have jumped on the Apple dumpling gang bandwagon at first but it didnt take you long to sit side by side.And where do you get off saying I'm whining as you spell it,  go back and read the thread again.

    • You really don't need much insulation under the ground slab, I like to use pole barn ins.[bubble wrap] or 1 inch r board [heat rises],gyp crete works but it is patented and can only be installed by certified and licensed factory contractors. they mix it on sight, it cant be mixed by youre local ready mix provider,as the formula is property of gyp crete.
