    Ok this is my problem. My new reciver I just purchased Yamaha HTR-5490 has one sub output, but my sub has a Low Level Input - Left & Right -- also an Output - Left & right. So how do I plug this thing into my Reciver or am I screwed...

    Thanks!

    Picking either of the left or right inputs should work fine. If it bothers you get a Y adapter and hook it to both the inputs. You mostly likely won't ever need or want to use the outputs.

    A Y connector from the receiver's sub out to the sub's L & R inputs is the correct way to hook the sub. Make sure you select from your receiver's menu that sub=yes. You may have to mess with the soundfields on your particular receiver, basically make sure your are getting 5.1 and not playing as 2.0 for instance because the sound fieldsa er turned off.
