5.1 sound in Ubuntu 10.10, setting bass output to subwoofer

Although sad, I decided to update my old Windows XP, which has served me for many years (with rare reinstallations, of course). At first I thought about installing Windows 7, but after thinking about it, I decided to try the freshly released Ubuntu 10.10.

Scary fonts on web pages immediately catch my eye (even after I installed the font package from Windows). Perhaps it's a different screen anti-aliasing. But now it's not about that, it's a matter of habit, I hope.

There was a problem with the sound, and I don't know how to solve it. Sound cards have been identified and are working (if important, this is the built-in sound and the X-Fi eXtremeGamer card). The sound is output to all six channels, here is the order. But I need to somehow set it up so that low frequencies from all channels are mixed into the channel to the subwoofer. No other conversions are required. Now, if you start playing some music (I have not installed any other applications yet and try on standard ones), then for some reason the music is spread over all 5 channels, but there is no bass at all. Under Windows, this is solved by a banal checkmark in the Bass redirection drivers or something similar. It would be desirable and here such in the future versions of this OS.

That is, I need the sound subsystem in Ubuntu to add low frequencies from any channel to the subwoofer channel. In this case, no conversions from 2.0 to 5.1 need to be made. 2.0 to 2.1, 4.0 to 4.1, 5.1 to 5.1, etc. Enlighten me, how would I adjust the sound in this way. Or advise some good instructions (preferably in Russian). And then they were already pestering thoughts to stop steaming and still install Windows 7, where there will definitely be no problems with sound. Thanks in advance.

Knowledgeable people say that with Jack you can shuffle the channels as you like and add all sorts of additional effects to them. But I have not personally tried
