Is it possible to chain a pair of 8030s and two 5040a subs together? E.g. with line cables from pre-amp to sub1's in and from sub1's out to sub2's in and from sub2's out to 8030s...? Would it work or is sub1 in that scenario providing filtered (high-pass) signal to sub2 and sub2 would not produce any low freq (below 85 Hz) at all...?

This would not work, for the reason you point out. The output of the subwoofer is high-pass filtered. You could run only Left signal to the 1st sub and out to the left speaker and then Right signal to the 2nd sub and out to the Right speaker.
