Could somebody school me on the physics of acoustics?

I ran a session stereo via unbalanced cables from the audio out of my Mackbook pro via 1/8 inch stereo plug/1/4 inch L&R adapter, and finally into a PA via 2 tip/ring 1/4 cables. My drums, bass, and anything panned dead center was like 20db quieter than originally....It ruined a lot of the vibe of the session.

Can anybody sum up as to why and what is happening that causes the drastic signal attenuation?
Thanks
