If I understood correctly-you have one sub connected to SUB and the other to one of the Front preouts. The above method would allow you to use both subs for music and movies.
This is what i have now with 1 subwoofer:

This gives perfect smooth bass responce for music and tv (and no mute clicks !)
From receiver LFE a mono cable to the Yamaha connected to LFE input.
This gives the LFE for movies.
The good thing about the Integra 70.2 (and i think this will be the same for Onkyo x008 series) is that when i select the subwoofer in the speakers setup menu, the Integra will only send info to the LFE input on the Yamaha.
When i de-activate the sub the Integra will send bass info to speaker input of the Yamaha.
I tried this with a movie.
Sub activated in speaker menu and Yamaha gives powefull bass, pull the mono LFE wire, no bass (not even trough the L/R main speakers)
Sub de-activated in speaker menu and the Yamaha gives smooth bass through speaker wire input from fronts L/R.
So it seems the receiver is doing the selection based on the use of LFE sub or not
So in the end FoSheezy
did get it correct, only the setup is a bit different.
Hope i explained clear enough......
