I've seen colour shifts with modifiers before, mainly with the materials used for the white diffusion fabric.

Thanks for doing the test. I don't have the octobox either, but it sounds like it has to be the diffusion material if you are getting consistent results with the bare reflector.
I wonder if there is any chance there is a Chimera diffuser to fit. They are pretty spot on.
I think if you try some other Chinese softboxes etc you may see similar colour shifts as NoOneHome mentioned.

Just checked,6600K,use Minolta clolor meter III,Change to Chimera diffuser:5900K.
Thank you guys,I'll get right on this.I think it just matter change from pure white to off white material will do. see what I can do.because there is no inner baffer,otherwise will be easy just a narrow strip of 1/4 CTO will do.just like those E6 days....
Once again,Thank you for the input,

Before people start getting their you-who-what's in a bunch, just remember that this isn't a Cheetah issue. Most modifiers will introduce a colour cast. The more established (and MUCH higher priced) brands test for this and (mostly) solved the problem a while ago. Comparing a Cheetah modifier to a Chimera isn't an apples-to-apples comparison.
Thanks to BigIronCruiser!!!
After 3 month searching for good off white diffusion material. Now we have an answer.
We found an off white material which will produce better skin tone that is closer to the ideal Kelvin.
All customers that purchased prior to 6-10-2013 will receive replacement front diffusion panel free of charge, which have been shipped on June 22.
We also have a new flip over diffusion sock which will provide quick setup and easy tear down for those that ordered prior to 6-10-2013.
For purchase after 6-11-2013, this item is included with your purchase.
Also we improve the sewing on the Velcro to the fabric. When you pull the diffusion panel off the softbox, do not pull the fabric, instead pull from the velcro which will prevent the velcro from being separated. That applies to all the softboxes.
