Default Question about Hunt for Red October

Shortly after picking up Jack Ryan, the Dallas gets a message to attack the Red October. While Ryan argues with the Captain, the Captain orders a dive to 1200 ft. Once he reacquires the Red October, he orders a depth change back to 500-600 ft or so. What was the point of the dive to 1200 ft? Better acoustics for passive sonar? Or just a hollywood thing to get a scene with the sub creaking from the water pressure? Something else?
