Cool 5.1 surround sound with no bass in debian wheezy


OS : DEBIAN WHEEZY AMD64
MOBO : ASUS M4A88TD V-EVO/USB3
GPU : NVIDIA GT520

Problem :-

all time when i switch to speakers, i found no bass while playback, and when i change audio settings to stereo duplex everything plays normal but music listening becomes headache with BIG BASS output and kills sweetness of music because of no surround.

technically i'm zero to detect this problem.
any help would be great

Have you looked at your mixer settings (Alsa? Pulse? whatever...). You may be able to set the levels to your taste by adjusting the levels with your mixer.

And do you see any settings that are related to your problem? Maybe if you posted some screenshots of your mixer settings it might help.

Ok, that is only the Pulse Audio view which is not very helpful as you can see. Can you use the F6 key to change to something that mentions your audio card in the upper left-hand corner.
It may be that Pulse audio is screwing up your sound. This seems to be a common complaint against it.

I don't understand what you are saying. I wouldn't "purge alsa". I said that pulse was often a problem; not alsa. Does using F6 help with your problem or not?

i'm not purging anything i was just keeping eye on alsa and pulse both, one more thing i'm not purging alsa but just telling you this because I've read it somewhere don't mind it

For now i don't know who is creating problem? alsa or pulse? let me remind my problem once again,

5.1 sound configuration = No bass + only music
stereo duplex = FULL BASS + MUSIC

WHAT I WANT IS
bass & music for 5.1 sound configuration.

On your first screen shot you might try sliding up both Front Mi bars. They are both set at zero on your system and mine are at 25 and 100 on my system.
