    [QUOTE=RJS]I have one of the Amvona soft boxes sitting on the floor of my living room and I have about given up on trying to rig it for use wirh my Lowel hot lights.


    And that's a good thing. These boxes were never intended for use with constant lighting and would probably burst into flame had you managed to rig your Lowel lights up with them. The soft boxes intended for use with quartz lighting are made of much heavier and more fire retardant material than these units which were designed to be use with strobe lights. Its been a lot of years but as I recall the quartz soft boxes I used when working with a commerical photographer in the 80's had metal frames and some sort of high temp plastic diffusers and were quite heavy. And they also were rated at over 2000 watts per unit. Thats a lot of heat.

    My mistake. I thought you were talking about the fully enclosed version. I just looked and don't see an example of the ones I bought last year. But mine are about 36x24", with a black nylon back, an inner white diffuser and a white front diffuser also of a nylon type material. They are fairly light weight and would melt if placed anywhere near a hot quartz light.

    i think they mean their continuous lighting units. they do not get nearly as hot as lowell lights - they have a fan and don't give off nearly as much heat ... ( according to the folks who answer their phone ) ...

    i could be wrong though ...

    I think thier big ones are 2000 watts. A fan would help some but inside a softbox it's still going to get hot Anybody know what the material is? Tin foil is pretty wimpy but it's pretty fire proof to.
