The drums (especially the bass) sound a little richer from the spectators view. But they should get dialed in just fine from the drivers seat. My 12" on all 3 DW kits sound killer from the driver's seat. Check the suspension system, you may be getting weird pressure on a tension rod making the top head wonky.
