Thank you for all the years of Community discussions and activity!

The time has come for us to retire the community forums, but we will keep everything available for reading. There is a lot of valuable content written over the years, and you'll be able to access all of that. However, no new posts can be written, or old posts modified.

If you have questions, we recommend you use the Support function on the bottom right corner to contact our Customer Support directly.

Alternatively, if you wish to engage in a community discussion with other people, there are many active forums available. There is also an active, fan managed GENELEC COMMUNITY in Facebook, and many Genelec employees are active in the discussions there.

We are sorry for any possible inconvenience this may cause you, but we hope to hear from you through the other channels mentioned above.

too much plop/noise when turning off/on 8040

Hi, I just bought 2 8040 and one of them is making at least twice as noise as the other one when powering on or off, no matter if it is going to sleep or waking up. 

I also notice this speaker goes in standby mode a couple of minutes earlier. 

Is this common? Thanks
