So the new transducer bracket is on the pontoon log and the 83/200 and LSS-1 transducers are attached. I'm hoping this gets me into some cleaner water at speed.

9570

9571

Notice the LSS-1 ducer is slightly lower than the 2D ducer. This is something that doesn't appear in the installation manuals.

Have you noticed more surface cluster due to the bracket being wider than the ducer???? Its something I found when mounting multiple ducers to a horizontal piece of starboard. It seems to create a phantom return when the ping reflects off the board.

Very cool install BTW.

I haven't had it in the water yet. Should finish everything up by Friday and be in the water this Saturday. I'll check for clutter and report back, but, Lowrance says to mount the two ducers within 1 foot of eachother. This has to do with overlaying the LSS-1 data over regular sonar. Have only the two power cables to run to ground and to the switch, then I'm done. I plan on taking some screen captures for seminar purposes, so I'll post here also.
