[scribus] solid black with LSI/PDFX/Scribus and full colour interiors

I'm trying to increase the contrast of the images which are printed on the full
colour interior pages, printed at LSI using Scribus, by using a more solid
black.  I've heard about using CMYK, eg;

    C=60, M=40, Y=40, K=100

But it's unclear to me how I would set this up under Scribus either prior to,
or during, PDF/X-1a:2001 export. I'm thinking there's some kind of option I
need to specify.  Perhaps this has something to do with the icc profile I use,
(Scribus uses), for converting the images to CMYK during PDF export, but I'm
groping.  Does anyone have any guidance, please?
