First need to know exactly what those systems are and connecting it to what? Chances are good you won't be able to do what you want but without some info at least a bit about what you are trying to use there is no way to even start.

Hi,

I have a set of Philips 2.1 Channel MMS430 Speakers (100W) and a set of Sony SRS-D8 (60W).

Want to connect all the four speakers and 2 sub-woofer and put in the four corners of my drawing room with a surround sound effect. Drawing room size is 20ft x 16ft. I am okay to buy an amplifier and already have a bluetooth receiver.

Note: Also have plans to have a projector for my drawing room and connect that projector via bluetooth to the speaker system.

I wanted to feel happy that I can connect them (with the help of you guys) & to see them working :)

Let me know if the info is insufficient.

Both those speaker sets are already powered so you can't use an amplifier with them.

You will need a setup that splits front and rear audio into separate channels like a PC soundcard, then wire the separate 2.1 systems to one for front, one for rear. You will need to play around with the volume on those since both have separate volume controls. You will also need to get a powered center channel speaker for 5.1 surround sound.

A pre-amp with outpower like this https://www.amazon.com/decoder-Separator-Digital-Receiver-Coaxial/dp/B07X6NSYVJ/ref=sr_1_3?dchild=1&keywords=5.1+preamp&qid=1612847764&s=electronics&sr=1-3

Or a computer with a sound card with separate outputs https://www.amazon.com/Creative-Blaster-Audigy-Performance-Headphone/dp/B00EO6X4XG/ref=sr_1_2?c=ts&dchild=1&keywords=Computer+Internal+Sound+Cards&qid=1612847516&refinements=p_n_feature_keywords_three_browse-bin:6030987011&s=pc&sr=1-2&ts_id=284823

Thanks for the solution. I have two more queries:

a.) Will it work as a surround sound system?

b.) Since I am a novice so can you please share the connection diagram to make it work or atleast some link to it, so that I can be more confident and give it a try.

Thanking you.

If you split the rear and front audio between the two speakers yes it will play the rear and front.

Not much to diagram, need audio cables from the front / rear connectors going to the appropriate speakers. You will probably need adapters from the RCA or whatever outputs the pre-amp has to the speakers 3.5 mm jacks. https://www.amazon.com/Hosa-YMR-197-Stereo-Breakout-Cable/dp/B000068O5F/ref=asc_df_B000068O5F/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309750549985&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=12095670797166551136&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9001809&hvtargid=pla-432472999670&psc=1

Or just buy a surround sound system already configured for use with proper matched speakers. Even a soundbar with a rear speaker/sub would work. Vizio makes pretty good ones for a good price. I bought a used one for well under $100 and it sounds great. Wireless sub with rear speakers attached to it.
