The overall bulk of cable installed during a load-in can quickly increase the overall weight and dimension of any hanging position. As such, additional cable is often installed by initially being attached to the instruments at the hanging position. As the cable is installed, A Review it’s tied out of the way as much as ­possible. Following this method results in any extra lengths of cable being collected out of the way near the dimmers.
