Marco,
Voicing will have no effect on a heavy feeling action. I have 2 u-1's in our showroom and neither is heavy at all.You might want to have a technician take a look at the piano and check the regulation.

Voicing is irrelevant to whatever problem you have. You need a visit from your technician to check the regulation. It's also quite possible that there is too much friction somewhere in the action. Possibly key bushings that are tight, but you need a tech on site to check it in person.
