Default FireWire cable length

Hi,

I want to make a studio setup with my computer as fas as possible from my listing position.
I found a firewire cable with a length of 4.5 meters. Is that the max. length for Firewire / digi 002r or can i go longer.....

Thx,

Jeroen Wolff

The IEE-1394 spec has a limit of 4.5m for cable length, but there are companies selling longer cables and guaranteeing compatability via improved construction. People here on the DUC have used longer cables successfully.
