Cant get the speakers balance its all on the right side.

ok maybe i am not understanding what you are trying to do .if you are looking for balance you found it balance is front to back and side to side. if you are saying the volume wont change you might have one rear hooked up to the front and one to the back. this is most common on cars thatare hard wired "no harness"double check the way you ran the wires good luck
