Anyone using the Ouya and XBMC know for sure?

In terms of LFE, size does matter!

Android by default does not support any surround sound audio system, it must be added in and licensed.

Ouya would have to pay the licenses for HD audio in order to allow the Android OS to pass it through which they don't they only support Dolby 5.1 to the best of my knowledge, there is talk of DTS 5.1 support as a possibility.

This is an issue separate of XBMC it applies to all Android devices, for instance the more mature XBMC Android box the Pivos XIOS DS is licensed for Dobly/DTS 5.1 but not HD.
