You need:
1. put AudioDxe in /EFI/OC/Drivers folder
2. enable AudioDxe in config.plist:

Code:
        <key>Drivers</key>
        <array>
            ...
            ...
            <dict>
                <key>Arguments</key>
                <string></string>
                <key>Comment</key>
                <string></string>
                <key>Enabled</key>
                <true/>
                <key>Path</key>
                <string>AudioDxe.efi</string>
            </dict>
            ...
            ...

3. set audio properties in config.plist
For Opencore 0.7.6:

Code:
        <key>Audio</key>
        <dict>
            <key>AudioCodec</key>
            <integer>0</integer>
            <key>AudioDevice</key>
            <string>PciRoot(0x0)/Pci(0x2,0x0)</string>
            <key>AudioOut</key>
            <integer>1</integer>
            <key>AudioSupport</key>
            <true/>
            <key>MinimumVolume</key>
            <integer>20</integer>
            <key>PlayChime</key>
            <string>Auto</string>
            <key>ResetTrafficClass</key>
            <false/>
            <key>SetupDelay</key>
            <integer>0</integer>
            <key>VolumeAmplifier</key>
            <integer>0</integer>
        </dict>

Check the opencore configuration.pdf to see what these values are, just make sure to enable AudioSupport, set the audio path and find the correct AudioCodec and AudioOut values.

Note that in opencore 0.7.7 (not yet released as stable) AudioDxe will be updated together with keys in the config.plist, so make sure to read new documentation when and if you will update it.

4. Download OcBinaryData from acidanthera repository and put it in your EFI: this includes the boot chime audio file.
