I bought a dual disc a while back, and recently I just got around to listening to the DVD side. I was surprised to find out the audio on the DVD side was only 192kbps 48Khz AC3 audio. The 53 minutes of AC3 audio in only about 73MB. Is this actually supposed to sound better than the CD audio side of the disc?

No, the Dolby Digital (AC3) won't sound better than the CD side.
The concept of DualDisc was a CD and a DVD back to back. What was on the DVD side was up to the record company. It was sometimes a HiRez DVD-A or a DVD-V with at least LPCM sound. Some record companies (like Sony) thought any content would do and did just Dolby Digital sound. Now if that was in (5.1) surround it could have added something but else?

The Dual disc was short lived, it turned out that the public preferred a separate CD and DVD, also that would be the same production cost or less.

In theory, there is no difference between theory and practice.
