Question About Internal Wires of my Acoustic-Electric

I just got a new Ibanez acoustic-electric guitar, and I noticed that the wires inside the guitar(for the acoustic electric system) were unsecured and whacking around. When I changed the strings, I reached in and realized that the piece that holds the wires together had adhesive on it and had just fallen off, so I stuck it back to the inside of the top of the guitar. By the way the adhesive plastic piece was sitting, it looked to me like it was supposed to be stuck to the inside of the top of the guitar. That's where it supposed to go right? I don't know if it's just me, but it seems like the guitar doesn't have as much resonance as it did before I put new strings on it; I'm wondering if this can have any effect on the guitars resonance. Does the placement of the plastic adhesive piece have any affect on the resonance of the wood?

Re: Question About Internal Wires of my Electric-Acoustic

I would think so, seems logical that it would dampen the top a little. Like a really hard moon gel.
