Trying to get Pioneer radio to play up front in cab as well as out of Jensen surround

I am trying to get the sound to come out of my radio speakers up front in the cab of my 2018 Forester 3051, as well as come out of the surround sound speakers in zones A and B. I知 streaming Xmas radio and I知 able to sync with the radio OR the Jensen unit using Bluetooth but not both at the same time . I知 not sure if there is a way to sync the radio to the Jensen.

I've thought about doing something similar since I discovered, after warranty, that the right speaker on my Pioneer is not working and I don't have time to troubleshoot it right now.
The only way to do what you want, that I can think of, is to find a bluetooth transmitter and connect it to the Pioneer audio out or connect it to the Jensen and send it to the Pioneer, which may be easier as it wouldn't involve removing the in-dash radio.
I have seen devices that will connect to more than one phone for calls but not for media.

In my previous suggestion, you would be streaming music from a phone or tablet to one radio, then streaming the sound from that radio to the other radio using an added bluetooth transmitter.

Upon further investigation, it seems this would introduce an undesired echo effect due to to transmission delays between the devices.

From what I've read, unlike physically connecting speakers to a device using wires, bluetooth involves the synchronization of clocks between devices and the present versions can only synchronize with one clock at a time.

Even devices that allow connection of phone and media audio together will only allow listening to one or the other at the time. If you're streaming music and receive a call, the music is muted to allow call audio.

At this point, I don't believe that the aliens have shared the technology we are seeking. ;-)
