Possible sound deterioration adding subwoofer between amp and speakers


Hello, I have a secondary stereo system that I'm very happy with but am thinking of adding a sub. The setup currently in use starts with iTunes FLAC files or Pandora to a very competent Russian 6L6GC integrated amp to B&W CDM1 speakers through an Audioquest USB DAC Dragonfly.  The sound is wonderful but lacking in the very lowest of frequencies when listening to some symphonic music. I have a small Pinnacle Baby Boomer sub that I might like to use but am concerned that it may affect the sound in some negative way. The amp has no line out connection so I would be using the sub's speaker jacks. The speakers have a rating of 47Hz so I am considering setting the crossover at around 50Hz to minimize its inclusion except at the lowest frequencies. Any advice would be appreciated.

B&W CDM1 is a two way? It would benefit from higher crossover, 80hz, or even up to 120hz. Just put the sub between the two speakers. Also, make sure you have bass management to cut the low frequencies from the speakers + time align them.
Thanks, Eric. Because I anticipated that the best and most appropriate response to my post would be, as you said, to try it and see, I did just that. I was hoping that when the it was connected that the crossover only affected the frequency at which point the sub was activated and the main speakers would receive a signal as a simple pass through.  I still don't know whether that's the case but, even though my ability to discern subtle sonic variations , there was a reduction of sound quality that even I could tell. This was the case no matter if the crossover was in the circuit or bypassed, whether the sub's amp was on or off, its volume was set to zero, regardless of the crossover setting or if the sub is plugged in or not. 

So, I got my answer, the sound is better without it. Whether the culprit is nothing more than that caused by additional connection interfaces or something a little more involved, makes no difference; it just doesn't work for me. Thanks again for your response. 
Thanks, Coli. I got your post as I was responding to Eric. At this point I'm going back to what was working so well.
