i agree with elpresidente, check the fade, but the rear speakers are usually always louder than the front ones.

all right... I'm not a moron, I've setted the balance and fade to 0... I've installed my car an audio equipment, it's fairly simple (4 audio bahn 12's, a planet audio 600W Amp, a Boss Crossover and Parametric Ecualizer) I will add a Legacy 400 for the "car speakers" but I notice that I only hear the back ones, and the front ones are more quieter, do you think that when I install the amp the speakers will hear at an equal volume??

My english is not perfect, it's not my main language, sorry

the front speakers are wired to a crossover in the factory amp. So maybe you canceld the crossover when you installed the aftermarket amp. You had to rewire the conections from the factory amp to the aftermarket amp. and im not sure how to do that!!
What i did in my car was put a wavebox in the trunk with a 10" woofer and run the back speakers directly to the Aftemarket headunit, the aftermarket amp to the crossover in the factory amp. and then i canceld all the bass to all the speakers and once i took the bass out of the factory speakers they sound pretty god much more crystal sound and i have plenty of bass from the woofer.(i took the insulation out from the trunk to get more bass)

for the front I have 2 Pyramyd 6" or so... I don't even know LOL

Plus two tweeters (one for each side)

For the back I have 2 Cuspid (700W RMS!) 6"x9" (Yeah, I know, they don't fit, but If you make a little adjustment, they will fit

Plus two larger twetters (one for each side)

that doesn't sound so fun to me, but If I' have to do it... I'll do it

What?! I can't hear you. It's too loud back here!!!

Check you EQ settings, you may have screwed the pooch there. Possibly fade/balance for the EQ specifically. Also, the larger tweeters in the back may have something to do with what you are hearing. Is the bass louder, or the mids on up?
