I think the OP was referring to using a Y cable at the sub. The two inputs are for stereo preamps and not necessary with the sub out. I have heard of a few people using the Y because they believe...

Turn the sub amp up and redo the auto setup and see if it lowers the reciever settings. Auto setups are not always the best way to go.

I would turn the amp on the sub up a little and turn the reciever down. +10 seems a little high, my reciever is at -5 for the sub. How was your HK set?
