    This is probably a stupid question but what's the difference between a 90 watt system and a 60 watt system besides the wattage

    Most likely the number of outlets. The higher output is divvied up among more "users." Every outlet gets the same power, but the power goes to more places.
    Sixty-watt might have four, ninety-watt might have six, all getting 15 watts.

    I thinking about ordering the strobes and more 60 watt system it's a 6 strobe system that's why you was wondering if a 90 watt was brighter or not

    Whelen makes a 60 and 90 watt 6 outlet system.

    I have a 75 watt 4 outlet system and a 90 watt 6 outlet system.

    A strobe power supply takes it's output and divides it among the attached strobes. A 90 watt supply will be brighter under most circumstances as it will provide more power to each strobe.
