    I have a pair of the HS5 model. The manual is here. The Scarlett has 1/4" balanced outputs.

    1/4" TRS to 1/4" TRS for your equipment. 1/4" is one quarter of an inch, one fourth of an inch, or 0.25 inch.

    I think you've got it now.

    "plug each speaker using a trs to trs Cable directly into the scalrett 2i2" is exactly the same thing as "connecting the 2 speakers Using a trs to trs cable" unless you think I was suggesting connecting the two speaker to each other.
