Can the quad beam transducer be used on a side imaging unit?
We no longer offer the quad beam transducer product. If you have found a quad beam transducer locally, the below still holds true.
The quad beam transducer for our Side Imaging units is available in transom mount or trolling motor mount. The transom mount quad beam transducer is part number
XNT 9 QB 90 T
. The trolling motor mount quad beam transducer is part number
XTM 9 QB 90 T
the transom mount quad beam transducer can be used for high speed readings in a 2D down looking sonar. The quad beam transducer
provide Side Imaging on the unit. The quad beam sonar coverage is not as much coverage as Side Imaging sonar, and the side imaging would thus be used in trolling applications over the quad beam for high speeds . The quad beam transom mount transducer coverage is 2:1 (ex. 10 feet of water = 20 feet of sonar coverage). This is just an added benefit that can be incorporated on the unit with this optional transducer. In order to use both the Quad Beam and the SI transducer you would also need the
