I have an older Klipsch KT-SW Subwoofer (http://www.klipsch.com/kt-sw)(back view). It is a powered sub that I connect to my current receiver via speaker wires to the Sub +/- ports on the receiver. I am looking at getting a new receiver (something like the Onkyo TX line). These receivers have PRE OUT ports for the sub.

How, if possible, can I connect my sub to newer receivers?

Thanks for your time,

Your sub has RCA inputs... Receiver sub pre-out to subwoofer pre-in.

Depending on how old that sub is, you may only have one input. Back in the good old analog days.
