Default Primary Regulator PSI for Multiple Kegs

I've been searching and I can't find a thread for answer to my question. I recently pieced together a 4 keg system with secondary regulators, but I'm not sure what PSI my primary regulator needs to be set at to adequately support all the kegs. Say 12+12+12+12= 48PSI for primary or do I need to do something differently?

If your regulators are hooked up in-line on the high pressure port, you shouldn't have to worry about what your first regulator is set too.

My $0.02, if some one knows more about these systems feel free to chime in.

You shouldn't need more than 12 at the primary if your secondaries are at 12, but since you probably have check valves and such which can create resistance, I'd set the primary higher than the highest secondary setting you will use. 20 psi should be fine. 48 would be fine, too.
