When you are not having sound coming out of your Final Cut system it can be a number of things. Lack of audio can too often be something that makes you say "Duh". Like  Is the volume muted? Or are there a pair of headphones plugged into the system?  I t could also be that there is no audio associated to a clip. 

Here are two troubleshooting techniques:

1. Do you see the audio meters moving when the clip plays?

2. Load a clip into the Viewer window.  Click on the audio tab at the top of the Viewer window.   Do you see an audio waveform?

 If you answered "no" to either of the last two questions, you're not hearing any audio, because there isn't any.

You will want to go to the original source, and verify that there was in fact audio recorded originally. If so it is likely that the capture settings did not include audio.

If you have established the existence of audio through the audio meter, or waveform, then then the issue most likely is in the Audio Playback setting. Go to the View menu, and drag down to the Audio Playback setting. If you recently had, or still have a deck or camera connected to your system, there very well may not be a target for the audio.By target I mean something with a speaker. If this is the case, you can choose to have your Audio Playback NOT "follow video", then choose default, and then the Audio will come out your system speakers.
