Hello I was thinking of getting a Presonus monitor and need some advice. 

I do not have a computer so I am recording with the following...

iPad Air 2, Version 10.3.3 (14G60)

Izotope, Spire Studio audio interface

Spire Recording App for iPad, Version 2.4.0 (2.4.4) 

Cubasis App for iPad, Version 2.3.1 64 Bit

My interface only has a headphone out.  

Not sure if this will even work but here goes...

Could I use a TRS 1/8" cable to 1/4" cable to pass the audio from my headphone output on my audio interface to a single Eris E44 or a single E66 monitor ?  

If so and based on my room details below which monitor would be better ? 

Room Detials 

I have a small room which is 14′ Length, 10′ Width and 7′ 9″ Height.  No acoustic treatment, with wood ceiling and ****** floor.   I plan to use the monitors to record an mix, pop punk and punk rock music.  Thank you.

The Eris's would suite your needs more than fairly.  You might also consider the Ceres series as well.  You can pair your iPad with Bluetooth, works very well.

Some general advice, there's a lot of gear out there and music varies as much too.  Find out what others use that are doing what you want to do.  Go from there.
