Video link didnt work, but Im guessing its either a short in the amp or radio. You could always find and remove the fuse for the radio since you dont listen to it anyways.

By the way I had an older mercedes that did the same thing a loud pop or an isane instant volume increase. Turned out it was a short in the factory BOSE amp causing the issues.

Its possible the amp runs on a different fuse though. You should be able to easily unplug the radio. Some cars require keys to pull the factory radio. If you are able to pull the radio out just unplug the wiring harness. That will take away all connections to the speakers, and removing possibility of the sound returning.

Damn that would drive me nuts. I would pull all radio fuses and just to be sure I got it I would unplug all harnesses from back of the radio. Damn. Still lol about them sounds. If mine I would also let the wife drive that one instead of me. Lol.
