2 zone setup on Trance XE80 for 1st floor and basement ?

Im planning to install a 2 zone setup for my basement and 1st floor.

I have 6 ducts opening to basement and 6 opening to 1st floor

do i need to buy 6 electronic dampers or 12 electronic dampers ?
trying to keep the costs low since these things are EXPENSIVE

Can you give me some guidance please.

thanks in advance.

If you are presently running all 12 ducts off of the furnace, I believe you will have a problem trying to use only 6. Your furnace will likely get overly hot whenever only one zone is calling for heat.
