Ok what you do is toss away the y-cable in you are currently using on your subs. That's not required as it merely copies the same signal onto the other input on your sub resulting in 6dB of gain.
You need a y-cable with 1 male to 2 female rca plugs. Feed the male into sub pre out on your avr and run 2 cables for your subs from 2 female jacks. That is in case you want to place your subs in different locations in your room (it's best to distribute bass energy in your room). Use left input on the sub, which usually is LFE input or use the input marked as LFE.
Regarding the 4 speakers from your bedroom, simply hook 2 of them with the avr in living room as Right/Left surrounds. Since you don't have the center speaker, your avr will create a phantom image through mains to compensate for the center channel. You can use the remaining two depending on the left over/unsued channels.
Run Audyssey and that's all there is to it. You may have to change crossover to the one you like and then comes the sub integration part. You will really have to play around with the placement and distance setting to fully dial them in.
