Default Lowrance HDS Transducer questions

I am looking to add a Sonarhub to a Lowrance HDS 10 gen 2. I want to use it for sword fishing at depths of 1600 to 2000 ft and also for shallower water fishing, 100 to 300 ft.I am trying to do this and keep my costs down. I am wondering if it is possible to connect both a Airmar M260 to the unit for the deepwater fishing and the TM150 for utilizing CHIRP for the shallower waters without having to use a switch box. I don't see the need to run both transducers at the same time. Also does this set up make sense or should I be looking to go in a different direction?
Thanks

Some time ago there was a post showing a screen shot from NSS9 Evo2 (same sounder as SonarHub) with B260 trolling at 1500' in saltwater.

You could hook the M260 up to the HDS and the TM150 up to the SonarHub. No switch box required. The TM150 would work well in shallow water, the the B260 would do well in deep, but would be tough at the deeper end of your range trying to mark swords.
