i have an arc sound bar installed on my fireplace under the tv. 

about ten feet back I have passive ceiling speakers wired to a new Amp (not connect amp) upstairs in a media closet. They sound fantastic but I would love a way to connect the Arc with these Passive Amp powered speakers. Right now I can only see an option to add Play 1s as surrounds on the arc. 

any options here to link everything together?

Yes, that’s possible! I’ve had a quick look at the units in your system, and it looks like you may have a Sub bonded to the Amp. You should first remove the Sub from the Amp by going to:

 Settings →  System → [Name of Amp] (+Sub) → Remove Sub

Then, add the Sub and Surrounds to the Arc by going to 

 Settings →  System → [Name of Arc] → Connect Sub / Set Up Surrounds


Hope that helps!
