connect sub woofer from preamp out on integrated?

A newbiew question. I would like to enhance bass to my 2 channel system by adding a sub woofer via Preamp out from my integrated. Is there any problem with that?

Thx again for providing thid info. I probably need to re-think this system. Fortunately it is a second one.
I'm doing the same thing. Do I just need "normal" RCA-type cables?
I'm connecting a Vel' Optimum-10 using the preamp outs from my Cambridge Audio Azur 840A II. They look like normal RCA outs. Or, is there some sub-specific cable interconnect I should be using? Advice? Thanks in advance!
Oh.. My mains are Heresy III's, not sure if it matters. If anyone has similar experience, I'd love to hear starting points for x-over, et. al.
