Found a Ecotech Radion Par Calculator. Just type in your peak levels and brightness and it will give you a rough estimate of the par in your tank given your lights are roughly 8" above your tank water. It also shows you where certain corals should be placed.

I would be interested in see how accurate this tool actually is.

We have 6 Radions on our 300G DD.

Right now its saying I only have 342 PAR @ 1" bellow the water surface.

It also says I can only keep LPS and softies. We are keeping SPS 12" bellow the surface without any issues.

You'll never truly know until you use your own PAR meter :)

Didn't you say have the same issue with Mitras, Time to invest in a professional PAR meter ;)
