1.  About 15% reduction.  Not math based, but from experience.

2.  This issue is thornier.  There is not just the failure of the weapon
to
a threshold, its also how fast it can be *repaired* again.  There would
be a
0 cost saving in points for such a system; in fact, I would probably
*increase* the points cost by 10-20% for turreted weapons.
As an example of this,

One of the main advantages the ESU had vs the FCT was the speed with
which
systems could be repaired after a failed threshold (ignore the spinning
top
tactic).  Fixing a single class-3 or class-4 had a far greater effect
than
trying to fixing multiple class-2 & class-1 to generate the same
firepower.
