If the subwoofers LINE IN uses RCA cables and the subwoofer out on the receiver/amplifier also uses RCA, plug it in using an RCA cable. If the cable is split on one end (a y-cable for both right and left channels), plug it in the R and L ports on the subwoofer.
Can you connect both right and left channels to one speaker?

Using a bridged 2-channel amplifier to power a subwoofer You could get a small 2-channel amp that normally puts out two channels of 60 watts RMS, and bridge it, so it could produce an output of 190 watts RMS, which would be perfect for driving the sub. Some amps are unbridgeable. Each amp is different.

Why does my car subwoofer have 2 inputs?
Dual input allows the subwoofer an extra sensitivity adjustment. Normally, it would be enough to use a mono LFE subwoofer signal from its processor. By using both inputs with the same mono signal doubles the subwoofer sensitivity. This means that there is now only half the signal strength to drive it to full output.
Do subwoofer cables make a difference?
But, will a subwoofer cable matter or make a difference? Subwoofer cables do matter as they enhance sound quality through increased shielding added to the cable that serves to improve the analog signal sent through the wires and reduce audio hum that would otherwise be produced.
Should I have a subwoofer for 2 channel stereo?

If you want to connect a stereo amplifier with stereo pre-out to a subwoofer, we recommend that you use a normal stereo phono cable.
Why do speakers have 2 inputs?
The two sets of terminals are usually for the low frequency drivers and the high frequency drivers. If you have multiple amps you would bi-wire. Some people bi-wire to lower the total resistance between a single amp and the speakers. The speakers will come with a jumper between the two sets of terminals.
Do I need a special cable for a subwoofer?
Subwoofers do not require any specific form of audio cabling. The specific type of cable needed to connect a subwoofer to an audio system will depend on the audio input jacks built onto the subwoofer itself.
