Signal loss is 3.5 on one leg, and 7db on the other two.

Note that this is the same as hooking up two two-way splitters to each other.

  • what you show is a unbalanced 3 way there is also a balanced 3 way which has 5.5db loss across each leg.

Signal loss per leg is 7db.

(picture soon)

Typical loss per leg is 12 to 14db. If you have to use an eight-way splitter, you probably need an amplifier too.
