DC Taps are special types of splitters that lose a ton of signal on one leg, but very little on another. The model number generally determines how great the larger loss number is.

For example:

DC-4 Tap: Loses 4db on one leg, around 1db on the other.
DC-6 Tap: Loses 6db on one leg, around 1db on the other.
DC-9 Tap: Loses 9db on one leg, around 1db on the other.

These splitters have one leg labeled "tap", and the other "out". The "tap" leg is the one with a large amount of loss.
