Hi All, I'm an AV Installer new to the SONOS Community.
I am completing a Family Room that will be using a PLAYBAR for LCR, and a CONNECT AMP powering stealth in wall speakers for my Surrounds. There is an existing in-wall SUB driven by a respectable 500 watt AMP that i'd like to use as the Sub channel for my new Sonos setup. Is this do-able? Thanks

No. The sub output on the Connect:Amp is disabled in surround mode because it would not be getting the .1 signal, only the crossover-ed signal of the surround channels. Basically, you need the Sonos Sub.

As jgatie stated "Basically, you need the Sonos Sub"
Thanks for the Quick response.
OK, how about this:
1) connect a Toslink 1-2 splitter to the TV Audio out,
2) connect 1 split to the PLAYBAR for my PLAYBAR & CONNECT AMP feed,
3) connect the other split to a D to A converter and connect that analog output to my SUB Amp . ( im pretty sure that AMP even has X-over adjustment )
whadya think?
