Just a thought... somebody was talking about that we do not use our dmmers to capacity. Often when I'm troubleshooting or doing a check at the beginning of a show I'll throw everything to full. Generally it's just that I don't want to figure out what dimmer (s) I need, but lately I do it so if there are any issues with loading or dying lamps I'll find out then, not in dress or show. All of our dimmers are not used, if fact probably only half are used. Is that a bad idea in terms of upstream breakers? If need be I could accomplish the same ends by doing half the system at a time. I do put some very dynamic loads on the system even in show (I come pretty close to flashing the full system at full on effects sometimes).
