Default Garmin 7616 Dual Units question

If I use Garmin 7616 dual units (2 separate units/displays) can I link with B175 L, B175H, and 2 GT51s (Y connected to each other)?

In other words I know each 7616 has one 12 pin and one 8 pin connector. I could use one 12 pin for the Y connected GT 51s and one 8 pin for B175L and one 8 pin for B175H. Will this work?

Or should I use the GT51pair and a B265HL dual band transducer?

The GT51 THP would use one of the 12 pin ports and the B265 would use the 12 pin on the other 7616XSV. If you were to go with the B175L and B175H each would use the 8 pin port, 1 on each 7616xsv. Networked via the Garmin Marine Network cable will allow you to display all transducers on either screen

Should I go with a B175L and B175H or go with B265? Which performs better?

What boat do you currently have and plan to install this gear on?
