It doesn't look like the built-in splitter can do this, so I would
recommend making a 16 bit "duplicator" subcircuit that has a 1 bit
input and duplicates it to all 16 bits of output.

Albert
Is there any way to duplicate a 1 bit wire and split it into a 16 bit
wire with the same bit happening on all the wires? It would be really
nice to be able to do this, and I figured out how to reverse the splitter
to face east and west, but I have a 1 to 16 bit splitter taking a 1 bit
input but only one of the outputs turn green for the bit coming through,
and the rest are dead blue.

I'm not quite sure what you're asking, but I'll give it a shot anyway.

If you want 16 wires each 1 bit wide just draw 16 wires coming from the
same source.

If you want 1wire16 bits wide turn the splitter around so that all of
the 16 connections on the end with separate wires are connected to the
wire whose value you want to duplicate.
