New Toy transducer mounting

Hi I have just purchased the Lowrance Mark 5x DSI sounder.
My old Eagle Cuda was playing sillies so was cheaper to get a new sounder than much about trying to sort out the old one.
so my Eagle had its transducer in the hull. easy and tidy.
BUT the new one with the DSI says you can install in the hull BUT greatly reduces the DSI signals.
my question is has anyone installed the DSI transducer in the hull and does it work.
my old was had no issues in the hull.

I moved my skimming (Garmin) transducer into the bilge by the transom - just siliconed it there - still works fine.

I have always epoxied mine into the sump/bilge but the DSI one says it will severly effect the dsi imaging.
