Default Front/rear speaker settings

Hi Gurus,
I recently installed the following:
Pioneer DVH-3190UB
Front Pioneer TS series round speakers
Rear - 689 JBL GTO 947.

As I drive, I find that I hear the music mostly from the rear and hardly think the front speakers are on... I can feel the vibration of the speakers but not the sound. Is this how it is, or can i change some settings...If so what will be the ideal setting for me at the drivers seat.

Have you installed the 947s on a tray(MDF/PLY)?

Did you try the "fade" option settings.
You might find a setting which matches your listening taste.

Typically the after market personals keeps the speakers at the rear at a higher level (Mine is kept at -3, where in ranges from +5 (more power to the front) to -5 (max power to the rear speakers)) as mine is a 400W at rear and 120 w at the front.

Avoids the speakers blurring even with high sound. the rear speakers are taking in more power than the front

A bit of both. While most 6x9s do have higher ratings than 6" coax speakers the real difference comes fromt he fact that the 6x9s are mounted on a MDF tray with a huge hatch as a box while the 6" coax in the doors only have the door volume as a box. Within certain limitations (which we wont go into here) a speaker put in a larger box will sound louder.

Add to that the larger woofer of the 6x9 (a 6x9's woofer is on par with a 8" woofer - which means the 6x9s woofer has 33% more cone area than a 6"'s woofer - which means the cone has to move less to move the same ammount of air) means that a 6x9 mounted in the rear MDF deck can go significnantly louder than a 6" coax in the front door.
