Radio Pops and is dead

My 2012 Ford Focus SE has a peculiar problem.
My radio will emit a loud bang and then is dead. It might be dead for a couple of days or longer and it might come back when I restart the engine.
Recently I had a new battery installed and shortly after the message center said "my battery was low and it was turning off the audio" The radio was dead for about 3 days and then came back. I went to my Ford dealer and had them check the batter and it was fully charged. Radio worked for about 2 weeks and "BOOM" dead again. I called the dealer for an appointment and was told to come in on a Tuesday. The Saturday before, the radio came back on. I told the service dept. it was working again and he told me to keep the appointment unless it is working Tues morn. It's now dead again.
I don't believe they will be able to fix it. The dealer wasn't aware of anyone else having this problem that I have had for at least 6 months.
I would appreciate any suggestions from other drivers having a similar problem.
Thanks

Moved to the Car Audio section.

I'm afraid there are threads here with similar symptoms, various loud noises then dead.
