Default MBox Pro v3 with External Mic Pre's

I'm plugging my external pre's (Avalon 737 SP's x2 & Vintech X73i's x 2) into balanced line inputs 1-4 on the rear of the MBox Pro. All connections are correct, switched to line inputs, +4 switches are engaged, rear inputs selected, inputs are gained all the way down. The levels are ridiculously hot hitting the MBox. Compared to inputting the pre's into an Apogee Rosetta, I'm having to turn the input and output of the pres's down to about 1/4 of what I'd usually run them at to hit approx -18dbfs using sample peak meters in PT12.7.1 on Sierra. Anyone else experienced this? Thanks!
