Arc Wall Mount detection- any way to disable?

I’ve had the Arc with official Sonos wall mount for a bit over a year now, and this entire time I’ve had intermittent issues with crackling during sounds that have high bass. Doing some googling, I learned that the mount changes the EQ to reduce wall resonance. I’d like to try disabling this, but the magnets in the wall mount are getting in the way. 

Short of getting a mount without magnets (or hacking up the Sonos one), anyone know an existing way to disable it?

If not, to Sonos engineering: can you please give us the option to force-disable this wall-mount EQ adjustment in software? Or even better, let us adjust the level of its impact with a slider.

There isn’t a way to disable it other than removing the magnets on the Sonos mount. This video shows you how:

 

Ugh. Why wouldn’t Sonos just let us defeat this in software?
