Studio monitors. What connections should I use?

On Rokit KRK's, what input should I use on the speaker? The RCA or quarter inch? I do not have means to use the XLR at the moment. The signal is coming from my sound card on my PC to a basic mixer, then to the speaker.

Your mixer doesn't have a balanced output anywhere? Is the 1/4" input balanced or unbalanced?

The 1/4 is Balanced. The RCA is unbalanced. Im planning on using this mixer: Studio monitors. What connections should I use?Behringer Xenyx 802 Premium Mixer 8-Input 2-Bus - 802 | eBay

Id like to get a better mixer, similar to this but I do not know which one to get. What do you suggest? Under $75 if possible.

Not sure about suggestions for an alternate mixer in that price range. Do you really need the mixer or do you just need a volume controller for your monitors?

Anyway, it looks like that Behringer uses unbalanced outputs, so you could safely use either the RCA or 1/4" jacks - whichever cables you have most likely.

I need simply a volume knob, but I do like the convenience of the mixer, but I do not need it. Another other alternatives?
