Have you tried what I proposed in some bug ? In F9, it should be easy to
add a desktop file to /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow that calls
some noise-making command. Maybe not an ideal solution, but it should
work, I think. In fact, I just tried it with a little script that does

sleep 1
aplay /usr/share/sounds/info.wav

and it made a sound.

The desktop file should look roughly like this:

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Name=Noise
Exec=/tmp/noise
