SU 800 and umbrellas or soft boxes?

Wondering if anyone can comment on whether the Nikon SU 800 would have trouble triggering my two SB 800 speed lights off they are in an umbrella (SB 800 partially or fully obscured from SU 800 by umbrella) or soft box ?

Have agreed to shoot an indoor family portrait with 15-20 people. Currently have 2 sb800s, one light stand with convertible reflect or shoot through umbrella, and an SC 28 iTTL cable. Thinking of buying another stand and umbrella, plus SU 800, and putting the two sb800s 6-8 feet from group at either end, pointing at the person in the rear row at opposite side.

Camera is d850, so no onboard flash for TTL control.

Thoughts welcome, thanks.
