I have a Outlaw Audio ICBM along with a Yamaha RX-A1000.

When we listen to DVD-A/CD/SACD I play through the multi-channel/ICBM.

However for some reason the RX-A does not pass the LFE channel out. If I move the sub from the RX-A to the LFE Out on the ICBM things area great.

But it needs to be in the RX-A for BD and regular TV.

Is it a problem to Y the outputs into a single sub?

I'd run one from the LFE channel on the RX-A and one from the ICBM.

Any reason not to do that?

Is the "Recombine" switch on the back of the ICBM set to "off"?

Do not combine two sources to one amplifier via a "Y" cable. Use some kind of source selector or manually swap cables.
