Zone actuators & zone valves

I can't seem to picture this in my head. I'm trying to determine if I can use one manifold to supply heat to two zones. I was currently going to buy two 4 loop manifolds and power each one with their own zone valve, but if I'm able to purchase one eight loop manifold how would I hook up the zone valve with manifold actuators?

    Actuators

    in effect are zone valves for each loop . You would not need additional zone valves .
    You didn't get what you didn't pay for and it will never be what you thought it would .

    As Rich said....

    You would have an actuator on each loop. That  would be 8 actuators and a big enough transformer to power them all.

    You would be better off going with 2 zone valves and 2 regular 4 hole manifolds.

    That's what I was thinking

    When does it make sense to use manifold actuators?

    When

    you have multiple zones in an area where only 1 manifold is desirable or possible .
