Default Northstar 6000i information needed

I've got a couple of Northstar 6000i's with a sounder module. I realize this is old school electronics. I've never hooked up the sounder, how would the sounder compare with a Furuno 582L?

I have dual northstar 6100i 12" plotters with radar and sounder. Simply said, this sounder is one of the worst I've seen. I switched to a 491 sounder with a 1kw thru hull and a little better. The old lowrance 111c I had on my bass boat in 2004 was even better. Gave up finally and just added a 7" garmin striker with chirp for $500. All I use the garmin for,up to 250 Ft. I love it for what it is. Just my opinion.
