the 2/3 stop more power I quite easy to explain.

if you use the bare bulb inside the bowens adapter to mount a softbox ... behind the bulb is a hughe black or open, non reflective space. If you now use the reflective metal part from the unscrewd dome you fill this non reflective space with something reflective. super simple and cheap hack.

If I'm understanding what you're doing -- putting a reflector behind the AD200 bare bulb -- this USD $13 reflector is made for that purpose:

According to their website, this is an "Adorama exclusive" so I don't see a Godox model number for this. It was made for the older Streaklight but works fine on an AD200 bare bulb -- I have two of these for umbrella use.

Adorama also has a $12 mini-reflector (AD-M) for the bare bulb, but this focuses light more forward so it may not fill all of a softbox or umbrella.
