Yeah, I need to research how this stuff works better as I haven't
figured out how to connect to the console when running it from the
command line.
I think I figured out my problem though, it looks like libvirtd
disables soundhw if selinux is enabled, even if it's in permissive

I'll test that theory out when I have time in the next few days.
