use google, find nice tool "GCFScape" http://nemesis.thewavelength.net/index.php?p=26
extract the custom .wav audio files from Addon .vpk, goto steam folder (L4d2 Sound) @
steam/steamapps/common/left 4 dead 2/left4dead2/sound
replace as example original tank music WAV with the custom one,start l4d2
learn how to open console in L4D2, type in "snd_rebuildaudiocache" and let it run.
u see a loadingscreen and this step takes awhile

gcfscape only for extract .vpk files (if u have download your custom music as addon/mod)
in case u have replaced the .wav file in l4d2 sound folder, enable ingame console and type
"snd_rebuildaudiocache" without quotes
a loadingscreen appears, it takes 5-10 min
after that your custom sound will play from beginning to end
