Default Radio Pops and Shuts Off

Hi all - so a week ago my stock radio started acting up (2015 WRX limited). A giant POP comes from the speakers, then the radio shuts off and the main audio/nav screen shuts off. The screen usually reboots once, then the whole process repeats once more and the second time, the main screen stays completely off / black.

Once I turn the car off for about 5 minutes, it's back to normal but within 3 minutes of using the radio (FM, AM, XM OR bluetooth), the whole thing loudly pops and shuts down again.

Just fyi, I had the subwoofer recall work done and this is unrelated.

Think it's likely just a bad head unit that needs to be replaced?
