2x 12" JBL BOSS build - how to connect components?

BOSS builders, chime in please!

In my dedicated HT room I already have two powered subwoofers (both 12", sealed) on duty. But just like many others, I too became inspired by throught's BOSS setup. My back row seats are on top of an 11 " tall plywood riser that can easily accommodate my two 12" GT-X1200 JBL drivers I bought. I don't thing I'll have a problem installing them into the riser sometime next week.

What is unclear though how to power them. My original thought was to somehow connect my Emotiva BasX A-100 stereo (speaker) amp to my Denon AVR-X4400H receiver, but after looking at the back of both equipment I am not sure how to pull that of. (The two coaxial sub out-s are already connected to my two powered subs. I know the LFE signal can be split using a Y connector but would that be the right approach??)

Heck I am not even sure how to hook up the Emotiva amp to the two JBL drivers... Can I use the Emo A-100 at all, considering that it is NOT purpose built subwoofer amp?

Links to view the back plate of both electronics are in next post below.

Too many to list. ;)

You'll likely get many more responses in the DIY section, but yes, you could add Y connectors and use the Emotiva. I'm not sure it will produce what you're after with only 50wpc and FR of 20Hz - 20Khz (admittedly I don't have a BOSS, and I don't know what most folks are running them with).
