Is it possible? I’d like to use the Amp connected to my TV ARC port and connect the amp to my REAR speakers. I’d like to connect the Port to a high power amp and my FRONT speakers.
Does this work? I know is an unusual setup as the amp is naturally suited for front channel speakers, but I’m trying to get around the lack of an HDMI arc input on the Port. I know I can use other inputs on the PORT for TV sound, but I’m not interested in that.
I really only need a way to use my TV (ARC), High power amp, and large speakers. If adding an AMP and using it as a rear channel with a PORT on the front gets me there, I can consider it.

No, that will not work. The amp or soundbar connected to the TV can only cover the front speaker channels. The Port can’t be used for a Sonos home theater system at all.
The amp itself has a lot of power and shouldn’t be a issue to power your front speakers, however it has a phantom center channel. You could do a setup with 2 Sonos amp, one for the front and one for the back.
