SP500 vs Entire Market Index ETF

If one has $50k to put into SP500 (XSP) or the entire market (XAW), should it be split 50/50, 100% into SP500, or 100% into XAW?

What are some points to consider?

XAW is best if you really want to passively buy the market (ex-Canada) while XSP (or any other US equities ETF) is best if you want to actively position your portfolio in US equities.

Does passively mean buying shares on a reoccurring basis?

Does actively mean buying shares when it dips?
