Low voltage landscape lighting dim

I installed six landscape lights in a daisy chain with a total of 66 watts ( 11 watts per bulb ). Iíve got a 200 watt transformer with a photocell. Iím having a weird issue with the first 4 lights being dim, and the last 2 being very bright. All of the research I have done, the problem is the lights getting dimmer towards the end. The total length of the run is about 30-35 feet. Iím using 16 gauge wire. I know, I shouldíve used a thicker gauge. But I figured with the short length of the run, and only having 6 lights, that shouldnít be an issue

Iím an idiot

i figured out my problem. My lights came with 2 bulbs. One was 11 watts and the other 4 watts. I just assumed that they were regular replacement bulbs. Turns out, the 4 that were dim were the 4 watt bulbs.... DUH!!
