    The Name is Adam, and I'm having a hard time hooking up my home theater system...
    Here's what I'm T'workin with.
    Panasonic tcp50s30 50" TV
    Pioneer VSX - 3600 Head Unit
    Sony Bpd-480 Bluray player
    Kenwood SW-22HT - Powered Subwoofer along with the matching 5 "surround speakers"
    Now here's my question.
    I've hooked up my 4 speakers to my reciever, but I cant seem to figure out how to get the sub to work
    here's the rear of my reciever

    and here's a pic off the cover of the service manual ( exact same as what i have)

    It looks like you're going to have to run the subwoofer between the receiver and the speakers. The way this works is the wire from the Left channel out on your Pioneer goes to the input on the sub, from there - the sub's output goes to your left speaker. Do the same with your right channel. You'll then need to select a crossover frequency on the subwoofer itself, which is done with the rotary dial. Something between 80-120Hz is most common.

    so I'm basically drawing power off of all 4 channels at once to power the sub?

    Nope, your sub has an internal amp (that's what the wall plug is for) - you're just using the speaker channels to give it a signal.
