Are you getting any sounds at all?
Check in /dev to see if you even have a sound device. My guess is no.
All sound drivers (I believe) are disabled initially. Check out
/boot/defaults/loader.conf and /boot/loader.conf. Also the Handbook has
a sound card section.
Most PCs have a cable connected directly from the CDROM to the sound
card so CDs might play even if FreeBSD is not setup to use your sound
