Solix / Re: Solix Cable Wiring?

Ok, here's the input from Wayne.  Those are the correct numbers for the cables.  The transom mounted Dual Spectrum transducer is XNT 14 HW T. The part that I was unsure of is if you can connect those two cables and Wayne confirmed as indicated below.  Hope this helps.

From Wayne:  You connect the SILR Y cable to SI side of the SIDB Y cable and connect the Dual Spectrum to the 2D side of the SIDB Y cable.
Connect the two SI transducers to the SILR Y cable,.

Did you have both cables connected before going to the unit?  The part I'm not sure about is whether you can connect those two cables together.  I know Wayne from another forum and not sure he monitors this one.  If Ricky or Wayne doesn't respond here, I'll try and get an answer in the other forum (BBC).

The GPS antenna must be plugged into either head unit  ... It can then be shared to any head unit on the network  ...

CHIRP must be shut off the HELIX in order to share any Sonar to the 959  ...

MEGA (1200) cannot be shared to 959  ...

360 operates at 455kHz so do not use any 455kHz (2D, DI or SI) on the HELIX or the 959 at the same time or you will see crosstalk interference  ...

I'm not sure what you mean by "MEGA+ does not work on 360"  ...

Because 360 is an ethernet accessory it can be viewed on any unit in the Network (but only at 455kHz)  ...

Well as it seems I've done too god of a job house cleaning my PC.
Not only can I not, find a pic of the rear of my boat showing what you are asking but, I also cannot find the pic showing my set up from the other web site where Wayne and HB Greg used to reside many years in the past.
Wayne, any help?

What were you using before for the high speed depth readings  and where transducer mounted?  I'm also not sure how you can use 3 transducers with a single unit (L & R imaging transducers with a separate dual spectrum transducer).

Thanks, I should have mentioned that my boat was a tin Lund so no in hull ducer works for me.
This is the area I can't find information on, do they make a high speed ducer for the new CHIRP MEGA SI - Gen 2 Solix models? If so what splitter goes with it?

Splitter Cable for use with L&R transducers:  14 M SILR Y
Y Cable for use with in-hull transducer:  14 M SIDB Y

The new in-hull Dual Spectrum transducer:  XP 14 HW

I currently have a 959 ci DI combo, terrova 80, and 360 (on a home made deployment pole) and ethernet switch on my bow. The Terrova,959, and 360 are all plugged into the ethernet switch. The 959 DI transducer is attached to the terrova and is plugged into the 959. The 360 GPS puck is plugged into the 959. I'm adding a Helix 9 Mega + chirp SI GN3 sonar/chartplotter on the bow. My boat is a freedom 180 tiller and the 797 on the transom is not networkable. MY goal is to run 360 on the 959( because mega + does not work on 360) while I run Mega+ SI DI and chirp mega 2d on the Helix 9. I've already downloaded the way points from the 959 to an sd card and uploaded them to the helix 9. I plan to attach the Helix 9 SI transducer to the bottom of the 360 deployment pole below the 360 transducer and plug this transducer into the Helix 9. I plan to attach a network cable to the Helix 9 to the ethernet switch. I want to also be able to run follow the contour on either unit. Should I leave the 360 GPS puck plugged into the 959 or should I plug it into the Helix 9 or should it be plugged into the ethernet switch? Any other suggestions to help me would be appreciated?  Thank you, Kevin

I'm purchasing both of the new units and will be setting them up in the next couple of weeks or so.
SOLIX 15 CHIRP MEGA SI+ G2 Item # 411050-1
SOLIX 12 CHIRP MEGA SI+ G2 Item # 411030-1

I believe that the cables I currently have in my boat that were for a 1198 and a 998 csi's will not be of any use for the new Solixs. Currently I have both core transducers wired in with the splitter for L and R SI (I have an I/O out drive). That resolved my shadowing issue. Then a splitter for the high speed ducer (took care of loosing bottom issue). and then the cable heads up to my dash unit.

Obviously the core SI ducers will not work, but my question is, I believe the "Y" cables are different too? What about the high speed ducer and it's "Y" cable?

My search says it is all scraped and unusable with the new Solix. I've had issues with bottom contact when I had the original first SI (987 was it? I can't remember that far back) until I installed the high speed ducer and that totally resolved my issues.

I don't seem to find one for the new Solix units. Are they needed for depth readings? DO any of you have the correct cable numbers that I will need?
