Can I attach 2 amps to one sub?

Hi,
I currently have the Rel Quake and run LFE to it form my AV amp. I also use the Neutrik Speakon Cable to attach my Arcam amplifier for better bass when playing music - Although its not very musical as a sub. (I have a speaker switcher to swap between amps).
I am looking at upgrading my Sub and wondered, if the sub I choose doesn't have the Neutrik Speakon Cable socket, how could I still attach two amps in a similar fashion?
Sorry if this is a dumb question.

Many thanks
Chris

I think you would need to get a speaker to line level convertor for the stereo amp and run the output of that, together with the LFE from the AVR into a 2x in to 1x out, ine level switch to switch bass output between the two amps.

Thank you.
sounds like I’ll have more speaker switches than I’ll know what to do with :)
I guess I could stick to the Rel line of subs but really wanted a B&W. :)

Well, you wouldn't need the speaker switch, it would be replaced with the line level switch.....every cloud!!
