JBL FLIP 4 water damage and glue problem?

Hello!

I have submerged/tested my speaker in water at home (considering the certification). The JBL then got dried out but water under the power button was apparent in form of drops, which then also condensated and after about 24 disappeared. Is this normal behaviour for this speaker as it is IPX7 certified. Where might the water come from. I have only seen one video in You Tube where the same problem is regarded. (picture attached for my speaker)

Blue color is the norm whereas white is condensation.

I have a clue that it might leak from one of the passive radiators. Both of them seem to be poorly glued on the body of the spaker, BUT I have checked other speakers at the store, where I bought it and they too seemed to be rather poorly glued on, but maybe not as much as mine. Or it could just be condensation even though I don't think so.

The speaker still works fine. I had the opportunity to send it for "Repair", but this means that I will have to wait about a month for nothing, probably.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

This is normal for the speaker to get moisture inside the Light indicators It’s not water damage

It’s nothing to get worried over I put my flip 4 in water then noticed this too water has not got in to the speaker the button is protected by a rubber piece that keeps the speaker waterproof and then a little bump where the power button is and there is a little space where water can get in but that is completely normal
