Stereo output from rear speakers

Quick question. Standard base 6 speaker SE stereo 2014.

When I use the fader, the fronts have all kinds of volume when I fade to all front, BUT when I fade to all rear, there is barely any volume out of the rear speakers.

I was just trying to balance the sound a bit and stumbled across this.

SO, is this how they are or do I have a problem?

Sounds like you have one of the "occupancy modes" set. These adjust the sound stage in the vehicle to best suit the selected seating position (driver's seat for example). You can change it in one of the audio settings. I don't recall, I'll have to look today.

That doesn't work at least in my car, the rear speakers are always quieter. I've always pondered this.

I have the same issue... I wonder if the rears are primarily designed for only bass? I am considering replacing all 4 main speakers but also wondering if the fronts are crossed over like components since there are the 2 tweeters and should get a component set for the front...
