with your manipulation of the audio and with module-loopback you 
introduce quite a lot of latency into the
first path. Maybe you can simply set the latency of alsa-sink.1 larger 
than that of alsa-sink.0, not sure if this works.
Otherwise I would suggest to make the paths look more or less 
equivalent, that would mean putting a
module-loopback into the front speaker path.

You could also try and use my (not yet reviewed) patches for 
module-loopback at
which allow a better control over the latency introduced by the module.
If you use the patches and have a module-loopback in both paths you 
should be able to fully synchronize
them by adjusting the latencies of the two modules.
