Opinions on sounders with 1 kWh tyranny

 Currently got an axium 9 and looking at getting a 1 kWh tranny to go with it , but also thinking I might look at a stand alone sounder . Couple we have looked at is a furuno fcv 588 or a Sinead s2009 or similar and going with a 1kw tranny as we are looking at going out a bit deeper so will need something a bit stronger than a 600 w . 

All feedback welcome

 I don't think the axiom 9 can take a 1kw tranny, I thought that was the model that was restricted to the 600w real vision unit. 
the Simrad unit you posted with a 1kw transducer will be awesome. Where do you plan on mounting the transducer?

 Need S5100 to get full 1kw wattage out of S2009.. but gives you thru hull options. 

Buried Super deep in transom probably clearest water option without fairing block
