    They would work with the photo floods but they may burst out in flames if the softbox isn't heat resistant.

    Any strobe (even a flash) would work through the softbox. I use a vivitar 285 with a softbox.

    Voodoo, you say you use a 285 flash with a softbox? what is the pc cord called to run from the camera to the flash?

    I use a slave trigger instead of a cord.
