Are you talking splitter or splitter/amp? Generally you want avoid using an 8 way splitter whenever possible.

How many active cable outlets do you have in your house? You want to avoid unused splitter outlets at all costs. It is wasted signal.

X1 boxes have proven to be very signal sensitive and have specific requirements in regards to splitters and amps.

Why would you want to go from 2 to 8? There is too much signal loss, that’s what 11db means.
You need something like this instead, it’s more expensive but better for the X1 platform

That EVO is the one I have been using ever since I got X1 years ago.
