The AS SILR Y is for running a dual SI XDCR setup and splits left & right channels.

You would have had to plugged in the existing splitter incorrectly (which is labeled on the ends) and not chosen the HB DI200/83 setting or it should work.

The male/female plugs are not even close to the same; so they do not even connect; soIi didn't change any setting in the unit itself yet? I wonder if my package had the wrong one inside from the h-bird factory?

Again I have a Helix 10DI and a dual-beam transducer; trying to run both at once.

Thanks.

Have a great day.
Exactly right. The DI is also a more expensive transducer, so having it flush will only cause one transducer loss in the event that you don't see that submerged floating log when running in the morning. If you don't worry about that, you can mount the DI lower as well, might give a slightly better reading, but I highly doubt it.

Thanks both are mounted and look great; but I'm having issues with the Y cable for my Helix 10DI.

I purchased the AS SI DB Y and it DOES NOT work with my transducers. The package says will work with 300, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1100, and Helix 5 units?

The dual beam doesn't fit either? You can clearly see which pin holes in the female/cable are plugged it neither matches the DI or dual beam male ends?

This is weird; I have to think the cable in the unopened package is the wrong one?

Sorry to be a pain but I'm ready to try this out once I get the ducers hooked up to my Helix 10!!

Rick,
Just a thought, but you have to REALLY push the male ends into the female sockets on the Y-cable. I'm thinking there might even be a line on the male units that indicate full engagement?

Product description from humminbird:

Y Cable - Side Imaging and Dual Beam - allows you to use two transducers on one unit without the use of a transducer switch. For use with Side Imaging products only, in conjunction with a dual beam transducer only. For improved high speed performance for bottom tracking.

HRG you are the man! I got them in.

I felt like it would break if I forced it; but they clicked right in with force.

Thanks again guys; sorry for that brain fart this morning.

Thanks for posting the image Kevin, and Terry for clarifying.

I was just going to ask that TJ posted images - because Precision Guesswork isn't the best way to do things...



You will still need to change the transducer selection in the Sonar tab.

I installed mine like yours (side by side); but had them lower than what I think I need; and had rooster tails pretty bad.

I did read bottom 95% of the time; so much improved with the high speed vs DI alone.

I'm hoping the tweak I made in the garage last night will be the final adjustment.

Thanks again to all and have a great week.
