Hello. I am going to install a stock depth finder in our 2005 X-2. I have planned it all out except for where the transducer goes. One dealer tells me to put it on the floor of the engine compartment. Another guy told me that he installs them in the hole where the plug is and one of the bilge pumps. I cannot see how there is enough room in the bilge area and the fins are directly beneath it. Supposedly, these boats come with a "flat spot" where a depth finder transducer is suppose to mount. If any owners of this boat with a factory installed depth finder could snap me a few pics of where their transducer is located, I would be extremely gracious.
Mine is right after the PP padle wheel on my x1. The flat spot is visible under the boat and it is one foot in front of where the shaft comes out and six inches off the V towards the pasanger side. Make sure you will have uniterupted water where you put it or you will have flaky readings
Mine is between the transmission and the gas tank, very close to the centerline of the boat. It is a factory mount. I will say though, that my depth finder doesn't work great above idle. Very inconsistent, especially on non-glassy water.
