The most recent Quadra (ELB400) can go down to 7ws.

That being said, the choice of modifier can dramatically change the overall efficiency of the lighting chain, so it's difficult to use Ws as a truly representative value of what you'll be effectively working with.

The modifier is probably already chosen. It's a question of which light is used in that modifier, thereby influencing the end result. Even so, although a change in the light head used could result in a modifier change, I doubt the OP would switch from a softbox to a hard reflector; they'd continue to use a softbox since that's what the shot called for.
