    Hi, I'm currently using one rca wire from the back of the subwoofer to the receiver. I do have 2 rca connections on the back of the subwoofer and my friend told me to buy a y-cable, and then to connect that to a subwoofer cable that is hooked to the receiver.

    Should I do that? Will is make any difference?

    The Y splitter to both sub connectors (L&R) will field a 6dB increase in most subs (depends how they are internally wired). This is what I did with my own sub.

    You don't need to bother really. The L/R inputs are summed then amplified. One side should work just fine. Turning up the volume accomplishes the samet hing.
