Thanks for the congrats on baby number 2!
Yes, those are two Athenas (Point5MKII Sys) but they’re actually on top of two “Realistic” brand speakers (not sure what model). One of the two JBL’s were off in the corner of the first picture. I just wheeled out one of the JBL’s to show the size difference compared to the Realistic ones.
Yeah I ended up learning too that there aren’t pre-outs as well. Devient4Life actually sent me this article https://soundcertified.com/connecting-amplifier-to-receiver-without-pre-outs/ which led to me purchasing this bad boy from ebay (shipped from china) https://www.ebay.com/itm/194883944452 in hopes that I can pull the signal of JUST the front right and front left to toss to a separate 4 ohm stable amp (likely your 200asc/200ac build). I figure it has the potential to be:
-safer than just hooking the JBL’s up to my receiver
<font face=”inherit”>-better than hooking up a LOC to the </font>receiver<font face=”inherit”> to turn full on output back to signal again</font>
-way cheaper than purchasing a whole new receiver that has pre-outs AND a stereo amp
I made and attached a layout of my plan to make it a lil easier for peeps to ready.
