I didn't pull out any foam in front of the tweeters. Was I suppose to? I just removed the backing foam, removed the stock tweeter, installed the new tweeter, and then replaced the backing foam.

Nope, I didn't say that one side was louder than the other. I just mentioned that without rear speakers for fill, I find myself panning the audio a little to the right side to balance the perception of left and right volume when sitting in the driver's seat (left side speakers are closer to the driver, thus seem louder). If I moved my head to in between the driver and the passenger seat, I wouldn't have to pan the audio.

I really hope it isn't, but if it is indeed the front head unit wouldn't the new tweeters hiss with the OEM amp as well?
