stereo/sound question

My 2003 has the upgraded bose stereo with windscren. I noticed that almost all of the sound comes from the front speakers. Is that normal? I know the "horn" is just for bass, but not much seems to be coming out from the rear.

And yes I did check the fader

I have a 2003 also and the options code etc has upgraded sound...tho none of the speakers say Bose etc...

Anyhow I have found on mine that if I adjust fade back the I hear more rear and the back itself is JUST bass sounds basically that is it.. So I think that is normal ? If you are getting nothing the that is wrong...try adjusting fader to rear and see..

I checked the connector behind the drivers seat/head. It seems a little loose, but I can't get my hand in there to unplug and replug it in. Is there som sort of trick for this?

Thanks
