If your computers are powerfull enough I would recommend installing the

Pavucontrol gives you a dialog which allows you to easily switch the
default audio output.
If you don't want to use pulseaudio either you select the default
soundcard in every application that uses sound or you need to deal with
fiddeling with the asoundrc config file to set the default alsa sound
card. (There is no graphical tool that I know which does this)

Hope that helps
