The subwoofer needs a dedicated amplifiert. The output (RCA) of your main receiver will need to be connect to an amplifier of some sort. Next, connect the amplifier's speaker outputs to the subwoofer.  Do you have any old 2 channel receiver's sitting in a closet or anything? if so, it should work here.

 What model subwoofer is it?  If its kinda old and of unknown quality I'd look for something inexpensive. An old 2 channel receiver you might pick up at the local pawn shop for twenty bucks for example. 

 

 Something like this would work too

 Another budget option,

 Be careful though, you don't want to spend too much on this project as you can get okay performing brand new subwoofers for $100-$125 or so.

By chance, do you know what Pyle this is?

 

Over the years, they've made absolute crap through competition worthy.
