    If they're active (powered) monitors, you'll likely be using balanced or XLR cable.

    If the signal is going to an amplifier THEN to the speakers, you'll use speaker cable.

    Yes, if you have XLR in, self-powered monitors, then running XLR mic cables is fine (as it's not carrying high power, power amp output, anyway)
