BSW unbalanced sound

Let me start off this thread saying I had my door panel off to fix the rubber door seal that I installed wrong when I installed my new side mirror. I disconnected all speakers excluding the tweeter and everything went back to how it was.

I then moved on to my passenger side to check out one of my BSW midranges that has given me an odd rattle with certain bass-ey frequencies. Upon having everything half buttoned up on that side I decided to test the audio to make 100% sure everything was working. I used my aux input & iphone to test it and when I first started out the aux cable wasn't 100% in the iPhone jack and when I adjusted it, I got the regular feedback at high volume (I didn't realize aux wasn't fully in phone). I plugged it in 100% and everything is working.

Now the odd part. Whenever I drive I just get this feeling that the whole system is unbalanced. With 3 speakers in each door, it's kind of hard to pinpoint if one side is louder.. or if one side is softer. It just seems to me like I'm getting more sound from my drivers side that is seemingly much 'higher' than the rest.

It, to me, sounds almost like that split second where you turn off the hi-fi stereo in front of the gear shifter and you have to shake your head a bit to get used to the odd sound that the stereo makes without the hi-fi button pushed.

It doesn't sound as 'complete' as it once did.

I did mess with the tweeter direction though when messing with my mirror. Could me not aiming it back in the correct direction alter the overall sound?

I'm stumped.. and losing my mind every time I put music on
