Can I use a fan splitter on a fan controller?

I bought a Phanteks universal fan controller to facilitate the 4 fans that I have in my case because my motherboard only has one fan header. I have a total of 4 3-pin fans (3 came with the case) but the controller only has 3 slots for 3 pin fans so I was wondering if I would be able to use a splitter on one of the fan hub ports or would it just be better and easier to get a 4 pin fan?

In my experience it shouldn't matter whether its 3 pin or 4 pin. I could be wrong however.

NOTE: I AM NEVER ALWAYS RIGHT, BUT I AM HAPPY TO HELP ANYWAY I CAN

What controller? If its one with external power, or if fans are withing mobo header spec limits, then you are good to go.
