Help please, with unusual WiFi AND Wired set-up...

Hello everybody.

Help!! I have a question which is a bit different, and may require the old "grey matter" to start working a bit!

OK. I have a 32" Sony LCD TV on my bedroom wall. It also runs, via Bluetooth, a Sub (Type: Sony SWF BR-100), turning a reasonable viewving/listenig affair, into a really engaging, "thunpy" experiencxce.

In my room I also have a Cambridge Audio (just 'CA' from now on) mini HiFi, running a (wired) CD player and speakers. As most of my music is stored on my iPad, the CA unit is connected by Bluetooth to my iPad to access my music. I also have a lovely pair of B&W Headphones. Again, by Bluetooth, they can connect either to the CA unit, or if I prefer, to my iPad directly, cutting out all the CA setup. Both of these options are done by Bluetooth.

MY QUESTION: could I (and how?!) connect my CA unit (if possible by Bluetooth, but I would accept a wired alternative) to my Sony Sub? My speakers are 'bookshelf' type, and the sound does need beefing out a bit. NOTE: The CA unit itself already has an RCA-type socket (I think it is RCA at least!) which is labelled "Subwoofer Out", so the wired option should be easy.

It is the Bluetooth option which I prefer, but confuses me! If I were able to pair CA unit to Sony Sub, then how would CA Unit know whether I wanted it to talk to the Sub, or my iPad, or my Headphones, is what confuses me.

Lastly, I could live with a wire from CA Unit to Sub, but, could I then keep Bluetooth pairing from TV to Sub, assuming Stereo is all turned off? does this make sense??

Very lastly, I mentioned the CA Unit has a single 'Out to Sub' socket on the back. Do you think, from experience, this is an RCA type plug? If I have a pair of RCA leads leads I no longer intend to use, could I simply pull them apart and use one “side” to connect CA Unit to sub?

could it work?? HELP!!

Thank you everyone!!!!
