How do I connect the fiber optic loop to bypass the L7 amp?

Question Will the front speakers still work if the L7 amp is bypassed with a most jumper?

I'm trying to diagnose a most fiber network issue and I'm wondering if the front speakers will still play sound if the Logic 7 amplifier is bypassed with an extra fiber optic jumper.
