  • Yes, the Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter works with the Apple Thunderbolt 3 to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter. I have tried it.

    A previous version of Apple Support document HT207266 which was previously named "Connect devices and displays with the Apple Thunderbolt 3 (USB-C) to Thunderbolt 2 Adapter" specifically mentions that "Support for Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter is limited to devices that require less than 10W of power." That same document also states that the Apple Thunderbolt to Gigabit Ethernet Adapter is also supported.

    The Apple Thunderbolt to FireWire Adapter store page says that it "supplies up to 7W for bus-powered peripherals".

    The amount of power doesn't matter if the device is self-powered instead of bus-powered.
