    If this gets a little confusing I appologize. The red and white inputs on the back of our subwwofers, what is the best way to hook them up. What I mean is I have one subwoofer output on the back of my receiver should I put a y-cable in the output of the receiver and run a red and white patch cable to the sub or should I put the y-cable in the subwoofer input and run only one red or white to the receiver input. What I'm asking is should the y-cable be at the receiver or at the sub. Or doesen't it matter? Thank you very much

    What sub do you have?

    It doesn't really matter where you put the Y, however, a Y-adapter is usually not necessary AT ALL in this instance unless you have a very specific reason or need for using one. Most subs are configured to accept a single "mono" connection at their left or right inputs.
