Overall balance?

Between the kick and snare/clap/snap. How do some of you place them volume wise. I usually have them hit at the same volume. Then the vocals. How do some of u place them once u have those elements going. When I listen to mixed music. It seems as tho I can hear the vocals loud and clear. But the drums seem to stand out bigger. And some of the sounds do the same thing. Like synths. Almost as if the sound is comin from out side of your speakers. Any tips on getting a balance that's big all around? I'm talking bout that BIG feel.

Once the vocals are in, you don't need as much snare as you think. I like a big punchy kick, a pretty modest snare because the vocals will bring it out more, and enough hats to provide highs but not so much that they piss me off.
