Parts from all-in-one packages like this aren't inended to be pieced out to other applications. Proprietary connections are a huge clue and disincentive.
A look at other Fixya queries gives this answer:
"I have this sub. The system connector jack needs a 12V DC signal to turn on. If you don't have a suitable Yamaha receiver with this connection, use any 12 V DC adapter with a 1/8 in mono plug (the tip should be positive)."
I imagine the subwoofer could be opened up and whatever circuitry is enabled by the Control signal could simply be jumpered "true" so it is always ON. That would mean the amp would be drawing power at all times, though.

If your Wharfedale sub is powered, it gets its input from a subwoofer output on the rear of the Sony. At a certain level, your sub is turned on and sounds just fine until the level decreases during quiet passages of music then it turns off. I believe the theory is that this approach prevents start-up "pops" but in practice it is a poor solution. I have had several subs that have acted this way. I don't know of a way to fix this short of eliminating the level-controlled turn-on circuit
