Re: BCT15X P25 Upgrade

Joe, I don’t have an SDS200, but the specs I quoted are as shown on the Amazon web page for the SDS200.


I do have a BCD996P2 and the specs agree with those shown in the Owners Manual.  I double checked them on mine.

The 200 specs cannot be correct. The 200 is the same

width as the 996 series. It is 1.5 times the height.


Is is something on the order of: 7 in (W) X 8 in (D) X 3 In (H).


I suspect those 996 specs include the mounting bracket.
