Check System Preferences>Sound>Output put for Balance.
Open Audio Midi Setup in Applications>Utilities, see the input & output options & KHz setting there, some things will change it for their own use, then not set it back.

Many thanks for your time and assistance.
I have tried this to no avail. The sound is only coming out of the left side. In the Audio Midi Setup I have also played around with the configure speakers box - the test sound only comes out of the left side, even if I swap the configuration around.
I am still leaning towards a software fix before I consider returning them to Akai. Any more ideas?

Just to be clear... you swapped speakers & still just have left channel Sound? In other words, both speakers do work one at a time on the left?
How do these 2 speakers connect together or to USB?

You cannot "physically" swap them around. (Product link: http://www.akaipro.com/rpm3).
As you can see by the rear picture of the right speaker, the USB cable plugs into the right speaker.
But I did try and "virtually" swap them over within the Audio MIDI setup in the configure speakers box.
It's very strange. There is indeed audio being transfered by the USB cable into the right speaker. There is a stereo jack from the rear of the right speaker which then plugs into and feeds the left speaker. The left speaker is working.
There is also a headphone socket on the right speaker front panel, which is also working fully in stereo.
