8030C Input Sensitivity with DJ Mixer

A few days ago I bought pair of 8030Cs which are connected via XLR (Master output) to Native Instruments Kontrol Z2 Dj Mixer. However, I´m a little bit confused about how the Input Sensitivity on monitors should be set up. Below are the specifications of Master Output on the mixer.

Master XLR and booth outputs:

Maximum output level+18dBu

Noise floor-89.3dBu / -92dBu(A)

Dynamic range111.1dB / 113.8dB(A)

THD+N<0.0007% (-103dB) @ 997Hz, -1dBFS

Frequency response20Hz - 20kHz +/-1dB


Many thanks for suggestions,
