It sounds like you're doing everything right. Did you define the sub to the Onkyo (Subwoofer = Yes, page 22)?
Let's prove the sub works. Set its volume about half-way, cutoff= 170Hz. Temporarily connect an RCA cable from its Line Input to one of the Tape Out connectors on the Onkyo and play some FM through it. If it's alive you'll hear the low end of the music.
Don't buy into the hype that there are different pedigrees of RCA (or speaker) cables that will make an audible difference. Save your money.
1400 is PEAK power. not to be mistaken with RMS. 1400W in SHORT bursts.
RMS on them is 500-600W.
Your amplifier gain may be improperly set. How big is the enclosure and what amplifier are you using. All of these things will play a factor in answering your question. Dont expect a $400 experience from $100 subs.
Also, it could possibly the preout terminal itself that is not working. One way to prove that is by transferring the subwoofer cable from the preout and temporarily transfer it to the tape out section. If it ouputs sound from there, then that means the speaker and the cables are working fine and it's just the preout terminal itself that is not picking up anything. ^_^
