80cm is a very good size for small setups (one man not groups).

There are many options on Ebay to get umbrella softboxes or Octa the Wesscot style, you can even get a 120cm Octa for about 45$, while the 80cm is for about than 30$.

How to put in 2 flashes? In this setup, the writer put in one and velcroed to it a second one
there will be a post about it in a couple of day, as its pretty interesting.

Yep 2 flashes are the best trick for better recycling times, but sometimes if shoot outside while there is a lot of light and putting the flashes in a softbox, you'll see that one 560 isn't enough and waiting for full power to recycle isn't the best thing to do.

PS
you can ask more Q at the blog itself, might get faster answers.
PEACE
