LED peaking red even with relatively low output.

Hey fellas this is my my first post here, I apologize if I by any chance break a rule or dishonor some etiquette. I wanted your advise on how I can overcome my issue. My 8050a monitors are peaking (RED light going on) even at a relatively low output. Usually when this happened before I would just turn my track/master fader/monitor button down and turn the speakers up from the back to compensate and I would be alright. But recently I changed my routing and I have the signal coming in to the speakers from a Dangerous 2 bus LT, so I cant just turn down my master fader or monitor level on my interface because I have no master fader. I am coming out on 16 channels into the 2 bus LT via the UA appollo (8 audio outs), and Lynx aurora 8 ( Adat from appollo to analog outs on the lynx ) All using db25 into the 2bus. Anyhow, even with my tracks turned down from my daw, my speakers from led is red. Anyone know how I can fix this?

The LED will turn red when either the input is clipped/overloaded or the protection circuit cuts in. I'd recommend that you turn the genelec's up to their full volume by turning the input sensitivity pot fully clockwise, then sort out your gain structure.
