I had a quick look at the specs on these cards & actually I think you just might be able to do the full 16.
You can configure the Presonus as a stand alone preamp....as long as it lets you send each input direct to one of the 8 line outputs then you can connect these via 8 patch cables to the line inputs on the Profire.
Not quite as neat as linking them via digital or firewire but it should work for the cost of some cables
You'll have to read through the Presonus manual regarding the standalone operation & check that you can route in1 to out1 etc etc.....I'm sure you will be able to.
