You may want to look at:

I have a surround sound card, but PulseAudio uses just the front

    Many people have a surround card, but have speakers for just two
channels, so PulseAudio can't really default to a surround setup. To
enable all the channels, edit /etc/pulse/daemon.conf: uncomment the
default-sample-channels line (i.e. remove the semicolon from the
beginning of the line) and set the value to 6 if you have a 5.1
setup, or 8 if you have 7.1 setup etc. After doing the edit, restart

for thou art crunchy and taste good with Ketchup!
