What you want to do is unsupported by Line 6, because it is not supported by the ASIO protocol - and Line 6 devices conform to the ASIO standard.
The problem is ASIO4ALL. It is not a true ASIO driver. It attempts to allow you to use different audio devices for input and output. That is contrary to the ASIO protocol definition, which demands that the same device be used for both input and output. The result of this pseudo-ASIO implementation, as you have discovered, is that true ASIO devices like the HD500 often do not work as you might expect with ASIO4ALL.
In Sonar, configure the Audio setup so that it uses the HD500 and its ASIO driver as the audio input and output device. All the audio from Sonar will be routed through your HD500 and you will hear it through the HD500 outputs. That, of course, means that you must connect your speakers to the HD500 outputs to hear the sound.
