Possibly so. If it were me, I'd personally opt for one of the newer Yamaha 2.1 analog integrated amplifiers. The speakers are sent a full range output. The integrated amp, and the 2-channel receivers from Yammy also have a subwoofer output. The sub output directs all low frequencies (below 80 Hz) to the sub (as well as sending a full frequency to your main speakers. So, if you have a main set of speakers that are accomodating down to to the 33Hz - 35Hz range, they can pair well with a sub. Plus, you can use the built in crossover on your sub, to determine a lower frequency cut, (e.g. - 50Hz) if you desire.
The sound is super crazy in this scenario. I'm running a pair of Monitor Audio RS-6 (in rosenut) and an SVS "water heater" sub. When it comes to movies, I realize I bypass the surround effects, but the front stage is where it counts in my book.
