Configurable Product from two simple products??

Couldn’t find a definitive answer to this question so I though I’d ask. Basically I need a configurable product to be formed from two simple products.

I have a configurable product I am setting up which is basically a helmet in a certain size and color, however there is an option for another product to be added, which is a third attribute (in this case it is a headset option). Does anyone know if two attributes can be associated with one product and the third attribute be associated with second product.

Basically when someone selects all three attributes, I need two different products to be added to the cart.

My problem is that if I leave any of the attributes from the attribute set blank, I do not get the option to associate it with my configurable product. Any ideas, or should I be looking at a different product type (ie. grouped product?)

Thanks to anyone who can help.
