Splitband amplifiers have a maximum output level that is similar to broadband amplifiers, so:
What are their advantages?
-->Splitband amplifiers feature two separate amplification stages (as their name indicates).
Each one is tuned for the UHF and the VHF bands.
Because of this, when applying a reduction of the maximum output level, the UHF and VHF channels have to be considered independently as if they were two broadband amplifiers.
Therefore, for a particular number of VHF and UHF channels, we can achieve higher output levels using splitband amplification rather than using broadband amplifiers.
