the speedo is metal, right? I think the metal dish might help dissipate the heat.
Yep..don't think that's it though..I think it's purely an airflow thing.
I've never had it shut off the modeling light because it was too warm when it's gridded...only socked. I usually run it gridded, but on this one occasion, the model/MUA preferred the wider spread of it socked. The down angle is similar to previous usage, so the only real difference was sock vs. gridded...
And the Quadra's 25W LED won't be bright enough IMHO. I run the 250W modeling lamp at full power and when you're gridded, it's just bright enough for me...
Look into a pack/head system w/ a full 250W modeling lamp and you'll probably be happier...maybe the Elinchrom Rangers instead, or if you can be less mobile, some old Speedo pack/heads that should fairly cheap...
