    I think there is an inverse square law involved in our Eye's perception of brightness. It takes four times the power for us to perceive a two times increase in brightness.

    So if we had to go for Rgb system would a 5w and 10w look similar ? Because my 2.5w Rgb and 5w Rgb look identical unless viewed under large distance along with other lights , only then does it look a little brighter , for an outdoor what Rgb system would u recommend in power ? Because pricing are twice as much ...
