4-way or larger splitter will work?

Can you use a larger than 2-2ay splitter for the joeys? 4-way for example? I can't see why not but thought I'd ask.
Not sure what a 4-way splitter would gain you... since each Hopper supports 3 Joeys...
You *could* use a 4-way splitter... but you'd be wasting a "way" since you couldn't connect a Joey to it.

I'm sure that someone somewhere has cascaded four way splitters purchased in 1980 feeding 16 locations and "everything works fine". OK, perhaps that is an exaggeration. The more you split the signal the less signal gets between the Hopper and Joey and the more likely you will have a problem.
