When I used to DJ, we used Neutrik Speakon connectors almost exclusively for sound, but did have a lighting rig or two that used them for power. It wasn't very common though, and it was always a custom rig someone wired up with connectors laying around the shop. Lighting was almost always with a standard power connector.
