Can anyone answer: comparing it to conventional systems how much power PAS has ?
The short to your answer is that the PS1 power stand has 3 250W True RMS amplifiers. The real question here is: WHAT SIZE AMPLIFER is required to drive the conventional loudspeaker to match the sound level of L1 Cylindrical Radiator at 80 feet (using the above example)? Want to take a guess?
human perception of half the loudness intensity is around 10dB.
Keep in mind that a change of about 3dB is when most human ears hear a slightest change in sound level.

Hope that helps
So if we have 5 bandmates on stage with PASs (5 X 750 = 3750 watts) each at 95db at 12 ft. What happens to the db spl of the group as a whole?
Thanks Hilmar. I was afraid it was one of those ... the answer depends on a myriad of inter-related and seemingly unrelated factors ... types of things.
I think my ears understand all of this better than my head does.

Is this correct, or is it really (this would be ideal) that channel 1 and 3 share an amp, and channel 2 and 4 share an amp? I'm sure this is not the case, but I have to ask anyways, since I most probably would never use channel 3 and 4...
What happens if a musician is blocking the view of an L1® system? Doesn't that block the sound?
Sound can diffract (bend) around objects. As long as a musician isn't standing directly against the L1® loudspeaker, the sound diffracts around the musician and other objects like a keyboard or instrument.
