Hi there,
I don't think your issue is due to BackBox as nobody up to today reported such issue.

Your system may have messed a bit with pulseaudio..

I think you need to reinstall pulse audio.

Do as follow if you don't know how to do that:
sudo apt purge pulseaudio
sudo apt clean && sudo apt-get autoremove

reboot your system and remove everything related to audio under your home following reinstallation of tools as suggested below:

rm -rf ~/.pulse ~/.asound* ~/.pulse-cookie ~/.config/pulse
sudo apt install pulseaudio
sudo alsa force-reload pavucontrol

Also check /etc/avahi/avahi-daemon.conf and make sure that you are not using ipv6


Restart the avahi-daemon, one more reboot and you should be set

Make sure that the audio devices are not muted.
