Default any way to connect old school stereo receiver to A/V receiver

i'm trying to set up a stereo in my garage with as much bass as possible. Payback for neighbors insistent bass pounding every night until 2-3am even after asking nicely to keep it down after midnight. I'm not the type to call police on them so i went to my storage unit and found an old school Kenwood KR-A47 (basic A+B speaker line out no sub outs) in storage and a Insignia NS-R5100 5.1 DTS Prologic II collecting dust and need help with setup for 2 10" & 1 12" active subwoofers (6 ohm each), 3 12" passive car subwoofers (svc 100w rms @ 4 ohm each), and 2 Technics SB-2660 3-way floor standing speaker cabinets. I want it to be as loud and obnoxious as possible, I could even build cabinets to throw in some care stereo speakers if you want to get creative- 2 6.5" Scosche 4-way (50w rms @ 4ohms each) & 4 Kicker 69 DSC-6930 @ 4ohms each. I build very efficient car audio sub boxes as a hobby and very knowledgeable in car stereo setups but home stereo is whole different animal and need some help. Any advice for setup to make my neighbors bow down to my bass authority would be very much appreciated. On the nights they keep me up until 3am, i want to REALLY wake them up at 6am when I have to get up for work. Thx 🤘👽🤘

Also look up the ordnance for your town regarding noise.
Log the time and date of the offenses so you have a record.

Then call the police and solve the problem the legal way.

ps. a friend just gave me some Phillip integrated base pipes that is missing the mids and highs that attach to the top he doesn't know the model of the home stereo they came from but it's just the two base pipes only, with 5 "(I think) twin subs 50-100w @ 16 ohms each, I have tried to test them on both those receivers. Tried connecting straight-in, parallel, and through the active subs, but very little output, definitely far less output than they would have originally sounded with the phillips stereo they came from, is there anything I can do with those besides throw them in the trash? ������

Thx for reply HarryY, but as i said in original post, I don't like calling cops on people, I was taught tattling was wrong wrong and only call police for emergencies. i appreciate the speedy reply, but not looking opinions on how i'm handling the situation, just stereo setup advise please.

I know Columbia Missouri well. Three generations.

Please work with the police. They are nice people. Columbia is (should be) a quiet town. Parties should not boom-boom at hours when working people need their sleep. The Columbia police want to keep the peace.

You don't have to confront. Upon information, the police can cruise past the party, hear it themselves, and ask the residents to turn it down.

perhaps you didnt understand my 1st two posts, i'll try to explain one more time, i'm not afraid of confrontation, I was raised different than you, i was raised to only call police if it is an emergency, anything else you handle on your own, show respect and handle it face to face, i was taught that going behind someone's back snitching on them is cowardly, I am not a coward, but the most important thing i was raised to always follow the golden rule. i wouldn't want someone calling the police on me, so i'm not going to do that to them, I asked them nicely to their face and I didn't get my point across so i am simply going to do what they do to me until they understand my point, and i will go knock on their door right after I wake them up, repeat my request and let them know that i didnt want to get the police involved just to get each other to show some respect to the people we live next to and not be hateful to each other. Now i'm asking you and anyone else that reads this post to please show me some respect and only reply to this post if you have some stereo setup advice or tips that i was asking for. We don't have to agree, you are absolutely entitled to your own opinion, and you will not change my beliefs on that subject in a diy audio forum. I got excited because I saw i had a reply and thought i could get started on it tonight, then it was disappointing to see another post focusing on everything except the information i was asking for help with. Please home stereo related help, opinions, beliefs, suggestions, jokes, etc. only, Thank you.

most of your speakers are 4ohms.
That probably means you will need a 4ohms capable amplifier channel dedicated to each 4ohms speaker.

Going by the list of speakers you have, you are going to need an awful lot of amplifiers.

A better idea is to use your high efficiency expertise and build one, or two high efficiency bass speakers. Then you can use a normal high power two channel amplifier.

Have a read of the Tannoy B950, it uses two 8ohms Celestion drivers to get to about 101dB/W (2Vac) @ 1m

Edit to post8:
the Tannoy spec shows 101dB/2.83V @ 1m, not /W
There are many speaker drivers that are as effeicient and some more efficient than these Celestion drivers.

Sounds more like a bylaw issue than a police issue.

Kenwood KR-A47 is only 40W /ch, not near enough power to blast the neighbors
Adding Insignia NS-R5100 will help, run each speaker to each amp o/p. Lets see if we can get 500W out of this unit.

If you look at p16 of the Insignia NS-R5100 user manual you can connect ext audio sources. You can make a patch cord to connect one source ie CD,PC to the input sources together, surround L/R,center,front L/R. Get a fan to cool the unit down and blast away.
Now we have to find some obnoxious music to play, could start with some Black Sabbath and of course big hair screaming stuff, iron maden etc.
I think the idea is to blast the hell out of them when they sleep and you take off for the day. Have to get the music to play all day long, so need something that can run for hours, like a USB jump drive or PC going on for hours.

Good luck
