>So, the Klonopin might "feel" weaker, even though it takes *less* of it to reach an "equivalent" therapeutic effect.

But since the therapeutic effect is totally subjective, anything which "feels" weaker, *is* weaker, for all practical purposes. I still don't understand how an anti-anxiety drug which relaxes me less than another one could be considered as strong as, or stronger than, the one that really relaxes me. It's kind of like saying that one beer sipped over three hours might be just as "efficacious" as a shot of vodka downed immediately, just that it has a lower peak concentration and a more spread out action. That doesn't make any sense to me, if the idea is to feel intoxicated (or in the case of benzos, to feel relaxed).
