From a very helpful person on the KDE list:

I'm writing this from memory but I thought that with alsamixer you
could move between the various channels using the left and right arrow
keys and move the volume of the selected channel up and down with the
up and down arrow keys.

Once you have made your modifications then you need to exit alsamixer
(esc key) and run alsactl store from the shell.

I've done it, and it seems to work.
