Advise on light modifiers for Elinchrom BRX

Hi All,

I have been shooting with a BRX500/250 kit with their original 66x66cm softboxes....

The light I am getting is pretty strong at the lowest setting, and I use a Circ Polariser on my lens once a while to cut down the light to the camera.... I also at times move the head further away, but this does tend to make the light harsher with less wrap around the subject... I do lots of product photography..

I am currently looking at getting a softbox/octobox that will help to provide a bigger light source....

Any advise between the

1. 100cm deep octabox

2. 135cm octabox

3. 90x110cm softbox
