New 7350A makes loud high-pitch electrical whine noise when in standby mode

New 7350A makes loud high-pitch electrical whine noise when in standby mode

Hello, I recently purchased a second 7350A subwoofer, and got everything setup with my tops and GLM kits, it all sounds fantastic when its powered on and working. However, my issue arises when GLM has been turned off, sending the speakers into 'Standby' mode. Out of my four genelec speakers, the new 7350A sub makes a whine which is very loud comparably to the other speakers (they all have a tiny bit of whine, when i place my ear to the back of them - but the newest sub is loud enough for me to hear while laying down in my bed which is about 1.5 meters from the speaker setup. It makes it such that i need to shut down the speakers entirely and not suspend them in order to get to sleep, because the whine is loud enough to disturb me 1.5 meters away.

EDIT: I should add, that all four speakers are plugged into a Furman Pluglock 60hz 120 VAC 15A surge protector/suppressor and on a 15A outlet/ circuit.
