Don't, it won't work because you can't hook it up to the front speaker output.

Yeah it wont work. You can use that amp tho to power speakers in a different room. Harman's wattage rating is on the conservative side, so I wouldnt look at the 85Watts as that low.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
