Speakers Popping every few seconds

Hi, new to Zorin... just installed Zorin OS 15.3 and noticing the exact symptoms described in this article audio - Linux Ubuntu Speakers Popping every few seconds - Super User. Every few seconds when not using audio there is a double-popping sound.

The work around in the site above works for me ... however to make it persist after reboot you are directed to modify /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf. I can do these edits but its read-only.

Any advice appreciated.

Long term IT user, noob for Zorin and Linux etc.

You can use the terminal text editor nano with SuperUser permissions:

sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
