Noticed that the active monitor runs warm/hot to the touch on the back even when nothing is being sent through it during day. Just wondering if it's normal and if it's OK to leave them switched On at all times.

Thanks!

The Studio Monitor does not have a sleep mode, so the amp is always on. It will get hot. It is not uncommon for speakers or amps to be left on for days, months, even years. If you're power conscious, then turn them off when not using them, turn them on when you need them. It's a matter of preference.
