If you're flying B'rel, weapon power isn't needed, nor is shield power. So, it's entirely possible to have high aux power (in fact, you should for the cloak, heals, and any debuffs).
But, my example was more to illustrate that the stealth consoles weren't needed. I was merely giving my experience from a test I ran to see what the detection range was.
My Tactical Escort Retrofit can be detected from about 2km, and I have low aux power (39/25) and no points into stealth. But, my B'rel is pretty much undetectable unless someone uses a reveal ability.
Besides, if I'm at 0km from my target, I can't fire my Bio-Neural Warhead (I wouldn't want to anyways, as the shockwave will kill me too) or my Breen Cluster torp.
