Audio Problems, "Tinny" Sounds

My sound sounds like it is playing music in a tin can, it wasn't like this the first time I installed FC3, but once I reinstalled it, it doesn't sound as good anymore. I have a 4.1 surround card and surround speakers.

What audio sever do I use? Arts? Alsa? OSS? What are the best levels for the sliders in the mixer? Should I enable "Full duplex" in KDE's control panel, how do I set it up in KDE"s control center for the best results?

I personally use ALSA. When I used ARTS i used to get static. ALSA works great. As to what works great, you could probably just play around with settings for Volume etc till you get it how you want.
