How to properly calibrate a sub-woofer so that it does not overpower the studio monitors?

I purchased a Temblor 10 sub-woofer to go with my Eris 5 studio monitors. Using the PreSonus recommendations for calibration I successfully installed the speakers. However, per the 85/82 dB (monitor/sub) level relationship, the sub-woofer is overpowering the monitors and resultant mixes are very weak in low end frequencies.

What is the guidance to set the calibration for the sub-woofer so that it is properly balanced with the monitors to ensure the correct low end frequency response for mixing?
