Well sir I do not know if I can answer this question but I will tell you what I have. My setup consists of one Alein Bee 400 Strobe (the smallest one they make) I have a 2x3 foot softbox attached to it. The soft Box is one that Alien Bee sells on its website. I will say that this Soft Box is lined with Aluminum Foil and it is Double Diffused. I will also say that For Digital photography I only use it at 1/32 of full power for Still Life Photography. If you are New to Photography then I would suggest Alien Bees becuase they are Cheap but not that Cheap. Not to mention They give you a lot of room to manipulate. It has a 6 stop slide Bar and it has a slave so that really is the way to go. To answer your Question about the soft Box. They have a 72" one and I think my light is powerful enough to use one that big.
