FiOS coax splitter recommendations

So I'm rewiring an existing house with coax and Cat5e for a Verizon FiOS install. The fiber line is already run from the street, and the location of the ONT is already established. House had FiOS before, and I'm just redoing all the existing crappy coax job.

tl;dr - I'm looking for specific recommendations on splitters that are known to work with FiOS


Wiring is based on the below wiring diagram from Verizon. #1 is a two way splitter, #2 is an 8 way to distribute to the other rooms (bedrooms, etc). From all my research, the splitters need to be bi-directional, capable of passing 1Ghz.



I'm looking for specific model/part numbers that are known to work. Preferably from Amazon, but anywhere will work.
This has to be in and installed long before the FiOS installer shows up. Wiring, patch drywall, paint, flooring...then and only then does the FiOS guy show up.

Any recommendations or suggestions?
 
I don't know any specific models but if possible get 3Ghz splitters. The second 8 way should be a distribution amp rather than a passive splitter. With that many splits you may loose enough signal that some of the longer runs will be iffy. Something like this

The one in your second link is on my short list.

But I went to the Verizon store today, looking to buy whatever they had that was recommended.

The guy gave me these, free:

5-1000Mhz

The 2 way will go in #1 as above, the red 4 way will go in position #2. We'll see how it works.

Aside from the initial 75' run from the ONT to the STB and router, none of the other runs will be longer than 20-25'.
