G series

i have installed several set ups with Genelec 8020 and 8030 and in almost all of them there are some issues with clicks in speakers if there are any voltage peaks from other equipment ega Fridge heaters and so on. The way round this is to use a circuit with no other equipment on it.

How is it with the new G series thats ment to be used in home Hi-fi setups, is there any improvment on this issue?

I am not aware that Genelec speakers would be any more sensitive to mains power noise than any other active speaker on the market. Of course it is not advisable to have other high power devices in the same circuit as your audio equipment.

There is not difference between 8000 and G series with this respect.

I am a "HIFI user" of a pair of 8260 and no click when fridge or dishmachine are in use.

Maybe a problem related to the electrical design of the house/flat ?
