[quake2] ALSA sound issue and sdl sound issue

There's a set of tools for ALSA that allow you to use a equalizer and 
tune it accordingly to your needs.
That might eventually solve your issue. I'm not sure what's the correct 
tool, because I don't use ALSA since I dropped SuSE Linux about 4 or 5 
years ago, but I'm pretty sure it's there. If it's a RPM based distro, 
you can try to figure out wich binaries it installs, for example: rpm 
-ql package | more  (should display a listing of the installed files, 
check for /bin/*).

Hope it helps,
