    Is the sound volume that comes from both speakers of equal volume? My top (earpiece) speaker is slightly quieter than the downward firing speaker. Is that normal?

    Tested your theory. Seems accurate to me.

    They seem about the same to me, although the bottom speaker has slightly more midrange.

    Bottom speaker is louder in order to create a correct stereo effect because the ear piece speaker is facing you while the bottom speaker is facing away from you.

    Yeah, That is absolutely normal as the new stereo speaker at the bottom of Apple's iPhone 7 series is twice as louder than the iPhone 6s and works in conjunction with a balanced earphone on the device, instead of a second edge-mounted speaker. So, the increased volume is not a part of a trouble that has been encountered by you. You need not to worry about such minor issues :)
