Will the strobe light work with my speed lights? I've been told to be careful on different light sources - Some run around 5k (kelvin) while others are near 6k temp. Currently, I have six LP160 Speed lights.

Thanks.

I use the Flashpoint strobes from Adorama and before I bought some wireless triggers, I used the optical sensor on the strobes and my speedlite mounted on my camera to fire them.  What I found was the output from the strobes was so much greater than the speedlite (550EX) that it added nothing to the image.  I set the strobe output with a light meter and took the picture.  I then disabled the strobes without changing the camera settings (speedlite was on manual) and took another picture.  The strobe shot was perfectly exposed.  The speedlite only shot was, for all intents and purposed, black.  So I'd think that, unless you combine all six of your speedlites with strobes, light balance shouldn't be an issue,
