Yes I have the strobes. I did lower the light and still found that I couldn't open as wide as I wanted to go. And I dont want to move the light backwards (already have a large softbox) since it will affect the softness of the light.

The other way to get less DOF is to use a longer lens and move backwards yourself if you have the space to do so.  For example, if you have a 70-200mm and are using it at 70-100, try moving backwards and going at 200mm and you'll see your DOF getting smaller.
