Congrats on the house! Just make sure there aren't any inferior subs laying around...back when Tom was building monsters at SVS, there was one time when a PCi 25-31 arrived and went RIGHT after the little Paradigm PDR-8 that was sitting on the ground next to the TV. If I hadnt' been there to break it up, the 'digm would have been compltely devoured!

So, if the Y splitter adds 6db, does room correction need to be re run or will knocking the trim back 6db give similar results?

You could just dial back the sub trim 6db long as it does not put the sub too far in the negative range. I like to be in the -3 to 0 range after everything is said and done or else the subs do not like to turn on at lower volumes(auto on). Meaning I set the sub amp gains so Auto cal(Audyssey, Ypao, Mcacc, Dcac) sets the sub trim around -6, then I bump it up manually into the -3 to 0 range and that gives me plenty of adjustment for different source material without going into the + range and potentially clipping the signal at higher volumes.
