How to Connect Wireless Speakers to Receiver?

Apologies in advance for lack of technical knowledge but I'll try to lay this out as succinctly as possible. I have a standard a/v receiver that supports up to 7.1 channels. I would like to run a wireless speaker transmitter for my surrounds. The transmitter device is 2 components: a) receiver for speakers and b) transmitter for audio source.

What I’m not sure about is how to connect the transmitter to the back of the receiver so the corresponding speakers act as surrounds instead of playing full ‘range.’ The transmitter only has 1 connecting source and it’s 3.5mm. Can I use a 3.5mm to RCA female adapter, and then a RCA male to speaker wire adapter above? Could connecting a powered device like the transmitter fry the receiver?

After reading the manual, the Monoprice system seems to be PRIMARILY intended for use with a device with a stereo (2 channel) output like a laptop, tablet, phone, etc. as opposed to an AVR. The manual does discuss its use with an AVR but the implementation isn't clear to me.

This kit is my solution in a home theater system with an AVR for approximately the same price.

I actually own two of these kits. For one of my 5.1 systems, I connect the "wireless" transmitter unit directly to the L and R Surround speaker posts on the back of the AVR as well as to a convenient wall plug for power. The "wireless" receiver is hard-wired to the actual Surround speakers as well as to a convenient wall plug for power. On the other system, I only needed to transmit audio to a Left Surround (Right Surround was hard-wired). This kit allows that configuration also.

As you can see, between power supplies and speaker wires, the use of the word wireless in quotation marks is warranted IMO. That said, these kits accomplish what is intended and work great for me. YMMV.
