Look and see if one of the red and whites(should be labeled left and right)has a "/mono" next to it. If so, hook it up to that one. Some manufacturers recommend a y-cable(sub cable goes into a single female that splits out to two male connectors)that would connect to both red and white.

Most of the time it doesn't matter, so you would just connect your sub cable to either the red or the white. Just make sure you are hooking it into an input on the sub.
