I had the EXACT same problem about two years ago.

I ended up unplugging the optical input wire to the amp. After that, it never happened again. I suspect it is the head unit. I have heard of several others having their head unit replaced for various reasons.

When I unplugged that input wire, it was glowing red (getting a signal from the head unit). So, one could reason that the head unit was sending an errant signal.

My car was also completely "off". It had been sitting overnight. When I popped the trunk, the LOUD static noise started.

Again, it only happened has never occurred again.
