Short version is that I have a pair of JBL TR225’s that I do not have an amp for yet, and I also want to set up a home theater for the first time, so I figure, why not use those in a way to make them part of my front stage?
(NOTE: I have not been bitten by the audiophile bug, so I would be more than happy with some rigged setup for now just to utilize everything I have before I start replacing anything)

Longer version: I’m brand new to home audio, have been given audio equipment over the years, and just want to finally put something together. I’ve watched a few videos on how to hook up a separate amp with preouts to a home theater receiver, so I know that’s a thing people do sometimes. I randomly have a pair of JBL TR225’s that I’ve been sitting on that I need to finally power, and I can’t help but feel like they’d make for a nice front right and front left when I finally set up the home theater. Haha. They’re 4 ohm speakers and are rated at 450w rms, so I feel like I’m asking for problems if I hooked them up to my Sony STR DG820 Reciever that I was given a long time ago and just fired up for the first time the other day. Legit 2 channel power amps look EXPENSIVE, and although I’m sure they sound better than pro audio dj power amps, that’s what I was looking at used on ebay just to find something that can dish out enough wattage 4 ohm stable. ALSO I know people like Nick have videos posted putting together their own amps from https://parts-express.com/ so maybe that could be a good have my cake and eat it too option?
