What cables should I use?

So I'm looking to hook up my new M-Audio Studiophile Bx5a Deluxe monitors to my Mbox 2 Mini going out through the 1/4" balanced output of the box into the 1/4" balanced input of the monitors. Two questions when I'm looking for this cabling, I see instrument, patch, interconnect, stereo and what seems to be a myriad of other options. I know I shouldn't use instrument cables but what kind DO I need? Any suggestions on cables? I don't necessarily need Mogamis. And if you could find them on Musician's friend that'd be swell because the monitors and stands are in my cart there but I'll take what I can get. Thanks!

You need TRS interconnect cables if you want a balanced signal.

But those are called "patch" cables. Thats what i wasn't sure about. Also, I wasn't even considering 1/4 to XLR even tho my speakers have an XLR input. I'm looking at these now:
