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 
vbell off

#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
