When turning on my Genelec's they make a clicking sound and when turning off, one of them makes a click sound but the other is not. Is this usual or is something wrong? Never had these kinds of click sounds with any of my previous amplified speakers.

Thanks for your post. Such click noise will not harm your loudspeakers. The presence of the click-noise at switch on or off can be directly linked to the mains power cycle you are at while activating the loudspeakers. It could also have something to do with a DC offset present on the input signal too.

However, these click noises will not damage anything in your loudspeakers. Now worries.

Best regards,
