Get an REL. They run off the speaker taps. No splitters needed, no crossover, won't hurt a thing.

Vandersteen 2Wq works great with systems like yours (separate pre and power amps). An included crossover box goes between the pre/power amps to roll off the low end that goes to the power amp. Then a set of wires run off the speaker taps of the power amp to the sub. The sub is NOT using any of the power from the amp (it has a built in amp) but instead senses the signal and that's what drives the sub. Essentially , the sub become integrated with the speakers "better" because it is sees the signal as the speakers see the signal (power amp output). This also makes your powers amp work less since the roll off prevents the amp from pushing watts for the low end.
