I have a speakerset which has an overpowered sub which has no bass control. So in the past I used to always use pulseaudio-equalizer with a default preset with almost no bass to get around this problem.

Now in Lubuntu there is no pulseaudio but only alsa and am stuck lowering bass in VLC everytime I watch something. I want to get PA back and set it up as default instead of ALSA.

I've installed PA but I am not sure how to configure Lubuntu to use it as the default output..
Can anyone help me with this?

Once I figure it out I will write it up nicely and post it to my blog so others will be able to find it in the future.
