Difficulty balancing the tone arm on kd-1033 turntable.
A new stylus should not change the tone arm balance setting if it is the correct stylus.
Does your arm have a sliding balance weight at the rear of the arm? If so you can slide this slightly towards the cartridge to regain the correct playing weight.
I would suggest you get a repair shop to do this for you, or you could finish up damaging your records.
Fixing a Kenwood KD 491F turntable
The reason why the audio is low, is that todays receivers do not have a phono input, and these types of inputs are differant then the ones of today.

I have a Kenwood KD12R turntable. How do I set the
The weight should be set to the position recomended by the cartridge maker. Typically 1.5 to 2.5. If you don't know the makers setting, set it at 1.5 and work upwards. The stylus should track nicely in the record groove and not jump. But not too heavy as to cause rumble in the sound. Set the skate control low and again try the record out, if the stylus starts to skate accross the record increase the force. It's a case of experimentation with no fixed rules on these settings. Some records might need adjusments afterwards.

I have a kenwood full automatic turntable KD-67F
First of all you will need an amplifier, because a turntable has no sound power and its impedance needs to be balanced by a phono input, often found on a receiver or an amplifier. Then you will connect the speakers to the receiver or to the amplifier. I believe that a good start would to buy an old cheap stereo receiver, which has phono inputs, where you connect your kenwood turntable. Hope this will help. Flavio/Brazil
