Re: Difference in Elite 9 models

Simply put.....one transducer vs two.
The product with mid/high LSS-HD has 2 transducer and the other has a single TotalScan transducer.

Check the product description for each as there could also be mapping differences or options.

3D requires a module but SS-HD is built into the Carbon. You can always add 3D if you decide you want that feature.

Re: Lowrance struct. Scan or HD Module whats the difference?

There is a huge difference between HD and 3D. You may not find a need for 3D but, the 3D module gives you more side-2-side area to view. If your budget can stand a few hundred more, go with the 3D. If not, the SS-HD will work great, especially with the latest 'FishReveal' upgrade.

Re: HDS carbon chirrp HST-WSBL transducer

Don't misunderstand 'cone angle' for 'frequency', or 'frequency band'. Each xdcr has a cone angle for the crystal, and the most common are 6, 8, 12, 20, and a wide 25.

Also gives you a sweet WIDE 25* cone angle. I have installed many of these and NO complaints so far. I use this ...
