As usual, terminology may be confusing here.  Latency is a fixed
measurable buffering delay defined entirely by your period size
(4096 here), the period count (2) and your sample rate.  

What you want to know, is how small of a latency can your system
handle your system without buffer over/underruns.... and it appears that
that number is not very small on you system, sadly.  

Did you say what audio hardware you are using?
