if I stick a 6k maxi brute on an additional dimmer it will always draw the same amount of power? even though it s outputting a lot less light?

You may need to explain what you mean by "an additional dimmer" but with professional dimmers, the amount of power consumed is decreased as you dim the light. With Maxi-Brutes, you can switch off each bulb individually if you want to maintain colour temperature and you have a limited power supply.
