Need to Identify Cable Needed

Firstly I'm a neophyte to studio monitor speakers. Can someone with knowledge of XLR/TRS balanced connectors tell me the exact type of cable I need to connect what's in pic 1 to pic 2?

The second photo circles in Red are combined 1/4" Phone and Balanced XLR inputs.

The top photo, tough I can't be sure, I assume are 1/4" Phone.

Likely you could use at TRS 1/4" to TRS 1/4" or they do make TRS 1/4" to XLR cables, you should have no problem finding either of those.

Good source would be musician supply stores (Sweetwater, ZZounds, Guitar Center, ....), or a search on AMAZON.

If these are indeed Balances Lines, then they need 3-Connectors. TRS is Tip/Ring/Sleeve which gives you Signal+, Signal-, and Ground. You can not use common TS 1/4" guitar cables which are only two conductors.

Best guess.
