Wattage question 898 vs 998

Post by kinghooker » Mon Apr 25, 2011 6:48 am

I'm planning on purchasing the 898 or 998 si unit this week a question I have is the information that I've been reading says that both units are 8000 watts peak to peak. But the 898 only has 4000 watts p2p. As far as I understand is it's based on the transducer, so does that count for 998 unit also and both of them actually only produce 4000 watts p2p. I don't plan on doing much over a depth of 125 feet, so I don't need the tighter cone. But what is the difference. And as an option for a second boat to move the unit back and forth what transducer, power cord, and GPS item numbers will I need for my second boat in order to switch the unit to a second boat.

1 kW transducer are only made in Bronze format.
And are only used on 2D sonar, preferably for depth greater than at least a 1,000 feet.

So, it doesn't work on SI/DI beam.

Both the 898c Si and 998c Si units have the same power output.

For a second station you will need:
- GM-2 unit mount.
- PC-11 Power Cable.
- XHS-9-HDSi-180-T Side Imaging transducer.
- AS-GR50 GPS Receiver.
- 540165-2 900 Series Connector Collector.
[All of these will work for both the 898c Si and 998c Si units.]
