Howdy all,

Does anyone know of any distance limits between Kino ballast and heads. I have a Gaffer Kit with two 4-bank's and I bought Kino-built break-down cables to power four single lights placed within set pieces etc. I've bought additional AMP connector sets to wire with zip cord but don't know just how long I can make these.

Anyone?

I've read somewhere (might have been the Kino website, can't remember) that the max run from ballast to head should be no more than three 25' extensions, so 75'.
