Need help setting up 8020b's

Need help setting up 8020b's

i bought some 8020b's about a week ago and I'm having trouble setting them up. what i want to do is hook them up either directly to my mac or through my mixer (ddm4000). i bought 2 XLR to trs jacks the other day and when hooked up these speakers sounded worse than 5 pound speakers from tesco. im thinking i might need an XLR to XLR cable instead? could someone please offer me help as I'm quite new to kitting up studios and i really wanna hear if genelec's are all they are cracked up to be!



p.s what is the best solution for hooking these badboys up for producing?

check the pin configuration so that it corresponds to your speakers. check the output impedance of our mixer and speakers. check the gain staging of the mixer and adjust gain from the speakers to avoid overloading the speakers.
