I will be purchasing a graph in the very near future. I will be purchasing either the 10 or 12 Helix. My concern is the overall size of the 12. I have an '08 Legend 211. It would have to be a side mount install and I am worried it would look like a 60' tv in a small bathroom!! Has anyone had this concern and which direction did you choose?

Don't worry about it, all the cool kids are doing it! I have an '05 Champion. I have a Helix 9 in dash and an HDS12 off to the side on a ram mount. Doesn't bother me one bit.

I have an HDS 12 on the side of the console and it doesn't hinder my view at all.

I thought about the 10. The 12 looks sooo big and the 10 looks perfect but for $200 more I got Chirp and 2 inches so I bought the 12. Universal media has the Helix 12 KVD Si chirp combo for $1599 right now in case you didn't know. Mine should be in tomorrow.

I got the Helix 12 CHIRP SI GPS to run the 360 instead of a ONIX 10 SI. I tested it on the console, beside the console, and now have it on the bow. It fits my dinky 16' Tracker just fine, LOL.

My setup is similar to Wayne's. I've got 2 Helix 12s on the console. But I used the bassboat technologies single mount because the double mount for 12s makes the left Helix stick out towards the center of the boat past the console and I was worried my beer gut would hang up on it every time I walked up to the bow. So I used the single dash mount then mounted the second Helix 12 on a Ram Mount off to the side.

I know where you could get a good deal on a Helix 10 if you're wanting to stay with that size....
