Well the easiest way is to set hilights in your irc client.
I use irssi, but I imagine Bx has the same sort of features...
from my irssi config:
bell_beeps = "yes"; // enable console beeps for irssi
beep_msg_level = "HILIGHT MSGS"; // this sets beeps on hilighted
words and private messages
So now doing /hilight devil will beep me whenever devil speaks
Next in my .screenrc I have:
#turn off visual bell, beep instead
#audiable bell for messages
bell_msg "Bell in window %n ^G"
So Slink3r all you need to figure out is how to set up bell beeps within Bx
