I believe the better way of doing this may be to use something like udev rules 
to ensure that your sound card devices always end up with the same device 
names. I do not believe that KDE is capable of choosing a default sound card 
using any other criteria than which /dev/*** it is.

If you're interested, I can find you some good resources on writing udev
