Power level with or without 6db attenuator?

Just setting up new superhub 3. The old hub 1 had a 6db farward poth attenuator fitted and was wondering if i still need it. Ive copied the results with both on and off so if someone could please have a look too see which results are better.

Re: Power level with or without 6db attenuator?

both are ok downstream should be -6 +10 - if one is better in any way then go with that - if not flip a coin!
