I’ve always wondered where the line is between consumer and pro gear. My old JBL 305’s has the option of +4 or -10, but are obviously consumer level.
I just got some Adam A7x’s, that are 4x the price, but are still “cheap” compared to some monitors.

Any suggestions for the setting for the Adams?

I have mine set to +4dBu into my A7x's. All is good. Cheers

From the front panel, go into Setup, then I / O and go to the Audio section, then scroll down to OUTPUT 1 CONFIGURATION. You can set the Output Level to -10 or +4 from there.

Dude the Adam A7 is arguably one of, if not THE definitive, metal monitors and they aren’t considered “cheap”
They are RELATIVELY inexpensive compared to the monitors metallica uses at $15k a pop or whatever, but not “cheap”er
The only reason I would change or exchange my Adams were if there was some damage OR if someone wanted to buy them and MAYBE Genelics or Focals, but honestly, i dont think i would ever “upgrade” just like my Xitone cab, its true FRFR and it sounds amazing i dont need a $5k monitor when a $1k monitor is literally just as good quality, just less expensive. I dont beleive price always reflects value, especially in the music instrumental world.....but thats just one persons opinion, and I’m just paying attention to semantics because you used quotes....and i have no issue with my adam a7’s pumping out unbelievable volume with my axe 3 on standard settings

Ejecuto mi conjunto de Alto TS212s a -10.

I put it on +4, am I in danger?

No. Just don’t drive your speaker beyond clipping. This is always true for all gear.

If your monitor is well designed, it has a limiter that will prevent damage when overdriven.
