The B175C-L has a freq range of 40 kHz-60 kHz...the lower the frequency the deeper the range..but also the L has less targeting capabilty .

To see a targets reliably in the 1000'-1500' range would be best using a 16 element transducer.

A Furuno FCV 295 with a 16 element transducer or a dual band CHIRP unit / 16 element such as a GSD-26 is what many opt for regarding working past 1000' and actually seeing targets.
Many transducers can see bottom deep ( 1000' and deeper) but seeing targets reliably is a different matter.
