All of the 2-way, 4-way and 8-way splitters which I have used, have virtually the same loss from input port to each output port. Variations of a few tenths of a dB are insignificant.

Most, but not all 3-way splitters have about 8 dB loss between the input port and two of the output ports. The remaining port has about 4 dB loss relative to the input port.

Occasionally I've seen 6-way splitters offered. As with the 3-way splitters, you would need to read the specifications to be certain what the loss per port is.

A good splitter should be labeled.
