Someone please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks,

The Grids ( I think it was Don) was talking about are ones that fit on the front of the box http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/cont...16&Q=&O=NavBar

I don't think yo can add these to the ab boxes

See, I was confused.

The AB softbox does not take modifiers and that is a limitation. Its a good value though and buying an AB softbox gets one the speed ring needed for any other softbox. The times I've used my AB large softbox I've been happy. In fact, here is a photo taken with it. One B800 with large softbox and a large reflector on the other side to kick light in to shadows. Even if I owned a B400 (which I had already sold), I could not have used it in the space. This was an apartment club house that was full of people, including little kids playing.
