I accidentally turned the power off one filter and unplugged the other filter to clean it and they were finally getting quiet before but now they are SO LOUD! Is this normal?

Could be air trapped in the u piece causing cavitation. Thats my first thought any way.

When was the last time you cleaned them? Could just be the sound of more water flow.

Well one of them is about 2 weeks old maybe. It was loud when I got it but was getting quiet then I accidentally turned the power to the power strip off and then when it came back it has been loud since. Not as bad as the Aquaclear which I can hear all the way down stairs.
I've had tanks forever, but they've always been in my basement where there were other noises from the extra freezer, refrigerator, washer, dryer etc. and I never noticed the noises of the filters. Now I have some small betta tanks in my room and I notice the noises haha.
