I just expected with a powerful light like the X2400 that I would have vast reserves of power and wouldn't really need to worry about it, but if I'm already at the max for a speedlight, that means I'm within 3 stops of the max for the X2400, too.

Think of the different reflectors you can use. With a narrow beam/30deg 1000Ws get me to f/22 from 12m+ away, should be enough for most jobs. Compare that to a speedlight!
