I have a pair of the HS5 model. The manual is here. The Scarlett has 1/4" balanced outputs.
Could you please be more specific For example tell me if i need a TRS to XLR or TRS to TRS and what does that 1/4"mean?
Sorry for being too basic but i dont know much about monitoring speakers i know what balanced output is but have no idea about anythibg else

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.
