Hi guys,
I just installed lowrance elite fs 7 beside my simrad go 9, I would like to connect the elite fs with a 1kw transducer for depth sounder to look for tuna. Looking at airmar tm260.
Any though or recommendation?
Thanks

    My only comments are that in order to take advantage of a 1kw transducer, you need to have a sonar that shoots at 1kw, which the Elite does not. Maybe you plan on upgrading your sounder later. Also, not sure what kind of boat you are mounting it, but those transom mounted transducers are massive and you would be much happier with a through hull mounted transducer if possible.

    The elite fs is the newest model and can push 1kw
