8351 coil whine / chirping sounds

I can from the bottom side of the speaker hear a low coil whine like sound up to 30 -40cm away, is this normal? Cant hear it from any other speaker but the 8351 is horizontally mounted on the wall so its easy to hear, noticed it when I was doing some work behind the tv.

Hi,

There is a large toroidal transformed inside the bottom part of the cabinet which typically emits some noise at very close distance, nothing to worry about at all. :)
