2 inputs into single sub - possible?

Would like to use my sub (Paradigm ps1000) for both HT and audio utilizing two separate systems. Can I just use a y-splitter to run both my HT receiver and my audio system pre-amp into the single input on the sub, provided I only use one source at a time? Is there a better way to do this?

Yes, you can run them into the sub that way at the same time, as long as only one is on. You can also sum the L and R outs of the pre-amp together for more gain if needed to the sub. It will also keep you from loosing any lower bass info that is rarely mixed to just one channel of some stereo recordings... (doesn't happen very often).
