I'm not sure I follow what you mean on how the connection will be made. You can always use a "Y" adapter if need be. Cardas makes a nice one. I think the Paradigm ultracube might be just what you are looking for 800 bucks new or so. A little 8" that is almost a rip off of the sunfire subs. Little tiny cube with a massive power amp. But, I did like the sound. Very quick, and one of the few I would consider owning with a pair of monitors.

I have a small secondary system consisting of Von Schweikert VR-1s, and a Creek 5350 SE. I added an REL Q108E. It has a Neutrik plug with speaker line level inputs. The wires connect directly from the speaker terminals on the back of the amp to the Neutrik plug on the sub. It is simple and I really appreciate the bottom end below 50 Hz. It blends well with my monitors. Good luck.
The ACI Force is a good bet, but ACI doesn't recommend the built-in high pass, suggesting instead you use their dedicated high-pass filters. You would then have to use a Y adapter (ACI sells these too). I suggest you also experiment with plugging the CM-1's reflex port for better blending with the sub.
