Usually, a subwoofer will have its own built-in power amplifier. Thus, it will be designed to plug into a standard RCA jack (the type used for DVD players, etc). rather than having wires to connect to a speaker terminal block. Look for a jack on the back of the receiver called "Subwoofer", or simply "SW". If your subwoofer has 2 single wires, it WON'T work with your reveiver's subwoofer output, as this output only carries a line-level signal and is not amplified. You would need a separate power amplifier for this type of SW. If your SW speaker has a DVD-type plug, it should work fine with the receiver's SW output jack.

you will need a line-level converter to use this subwoofer- it is a rectangular-shaped box with wires coming out on one end and red-and-white RCA plugs one the other. The end with the wires coming out will hook to the receiver, and the other end will need to plug into the sub.

Try this. It is the Service Manual but also has User Info.

Setting the Subwoofer Information
Register whether you have connected a subwoofer or not.
Before you start, remember....
• There is a time limit in doing the following steps. If the setting is canceled before you finish, start from step 1 again.
On the front panel ONLY:
1. Press SETTING repeatedly until "SUBWOOFER" appears on the display.
The display changes to show the current setting.
2. Press CONTROL UP / DOWN to select "YES" or "NO."
• Each time you press the button, the display alternates between "YES" and "NO."
YES: Select this when a subwoofer is connected.
NO: Select this when no subwoofer is used.
You cannot use SUBWOOFER OUT ON/OFF on the front panel (see page 14) and adjust the subwoofer output level (see below) when "SUBWOOFER" is set to "NO."
Then continue with setting its relative level and other things.
