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.
