    I have a nice soft box (cinedome pro by Photoflex). It has a speed ring with it made for a Lowel DP light. I only use battery powered daylight 1x1 led lights now (I have a really bright one that can handle a soft box). They do sell a speed ring that has 1/4-20 hole in it (which I could attach to a light stand). I am trying to avoid using 2 light stands though (in this scenario I would need to use a second light stand to put the light on -- either behind the new speed ring or somehow in front of it). Do you guys know if their is some type of hardware that would allow 2 things to fit on one light stand? If not, I guess I could sell the soft box. The umbrella octagon style soft boxes do work with one light stand, but the affordable ones are not very well made).

    You could probably use a double or triple header depending on what you're trying to do, but they're not really designed to be used on regular light stands and you might need a grip head and some other hardware to make it work; They're more for use with C-Stands or Beefy Baby stands which is how I use them.

    These are all great ideas. I was thinking of trying this:

    The cinedome pro by Photoflex (light box) attaches to:
    LiteDome: Extra Small Basic Connector - https://www.photoflex.com/product/li...sic-connector/

    The basic connector attaches to the top of a light stand.

    The lightweight led light attaches to the light stand with this (the light is place in front of the extra small connector) :

    This is the light (it's bright, but not heavy):

    Here's how a super clamp could hold the existing Lowell DP speed ring. Still can't figure out how to hold the light on the same stand in the right position.
