thanks for the answer, but when I had Windows installed, the speaker did work, I mean I was able to hear music, in addition to the beeps.
I've never heard of the case speaker making anything but beeps. Either yours is quite unique or you guys are talking about different speakers. I think you'll need to add support for the sound card that the speaker is connected to. Have a look at the case speaker. I can't see it being connected to a sound card but verify that. If it (or another case speaker) is in fact connected to sound card, add that device to the kernel.
Don't know what card you have (and am haven't really followed the thread) but have you tried soundblaster support?
It's pretty common. Worked on almost every FreeBSD desktop machine I've ever had. Hope this helps.

I added to my kernel config file: device pca (this was mentioned in the NOTES file)
Typically a PC speaker is not an audio device in the
normal sense of the term. It's there just to make beeps, and not music.
It's not going to do what you probably want it to do.
secondly, what is the use of adding: device udbp This is a USB double pipe. But what does it do.
I'm sort of partial to the traditional Linux kernel
configuration comment of "if you don't know what this is then you
don't need it." Since there are no devices listed in the Hardware
notes using this driver, and it's commented out be default in the
GENERIC kernel, I'm fairly confident that you don't need it.
