Need to connect prewired Home speakers to X1

I have 2 sets of speakers prewired in the house that we just moved into, where the wires are coming out of the wall next to the TV. I already have a soundbar connected to the TV via HDMI. I would like to add the two speakers to enhance the sound since they are already there. I do have have any compatible output jacks on the TV or soundbar to connect to the speakers. Can I use the Audio output RCA jacks on the X1 box to plug in the red/white jacks and splice them  directly to the speaker wires? If so, is there any conflict between the output on the HDMI and the output from the RCA jacks?

You may have an echo/delay effect, from the 2 different audio sources. You won’t know until you actually try it.
