HERTZ speaker on right side/front channel cutis in and out when you turn up volume

Whats up guys,

Got a question for you!
I washed my 2018 Harley Milwaukee 8 Road Glide just the other day and I wet the crap out of my inner fairing where the speakers are located on the front grilles on the front channel (left and right).

2 days ago prior to me washing it with a hose I completely drenched my front speaker grilles where my HERTZ speakers are located. The right side is now cutting in and out anytime I turn up the volume. 2 days ago prior to washing it, the stereo was working perfectly. The left speaker works fine and has probably about 95% of all the power coming thru that is being received from my head unit and amp sounding just fine. (sounding as if it were never washed prior to this whole fiasco.)

Also, (DTC code) my check engine light came on today along with the speaker issue.
Prior to today, I had no check engine light appear at all as well!

Here's my question:

Can I blame the whole right front speaker cutting in and out and check engine light coming on thing to me washing and drenching the crap out of my inner fairing (along with the rest of my bike) thing or would it be considered just coincidence. Up until today, I had absolutely no front channel speaker/check engine light problems whatsoever, and mind you I installed a new front channel with all new HERTZ speakers, micro Diamond 600 watt amp exactly 3 weeks ago, and everything was working perfectly...i,e. no issues!

Anything’s possible if water finds its way inside the fairing. Have you pulled the external shell to actually see if water made it inside and where?
