Abstract: Scattering on a resonance state coupled to a complicated background is a typical problem for mesoscopic quantum many-body systems as well as for wave propagation in the presence of a complex environment. On average, such a simple mode acquires an effective damping, the so-called "spreading" width, due to mixing with the background states. Modelling the latter by random matrix theory and employing the strength function formalism, we derive the joint distribution of the reflection and total transmission at arbitrary absorption in the background. The distribution is found to possess a remarkable symmetry between its reflection and transmission sectors, which is controlled by the ratio of the spreading to escape width. This in turn results in a symmetry relation between the marginal densities, despite the absence of the flux conservation law at finite absorption. As an application, we study the statistics of total losses in the system at arbitrary coupling to the background.
