You’re now halfway through 2. The second area gives you two more RGB converters and a red and blue circle to activate simultaneously. Note, that if you try to cross the laser streams, they cancel out and do not work. So we have to activate both without overlapping lasers at any point. So in order to not cross the laser streams, do the following:

Take one of your new RGB converters and connect it to your red and green-emitting RGB converters in the first room, then to the blue circle. With the other, connect it to the other new RGB converter you just used and the green one in the other room, then to the final red circle. All solved, it should look like this:
