Welll if your handy with solder then you can just get the rca solderables from radioshack ans some speaker wire solder pos to pos and neg to neg and voila you got some patch cable just make sure that the outside neg- part of the rca matches the neg lead you want-z
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Yes, a TurnTable can be connected to any of the Analog Audio Input ports on the Sony STRDH130 Receiver. However, the turntable signal will need amplification from an external pre-amplifier (or an inline amplifier) as this Receiver does not have a PHONO input.
This subwoofer is probably powered directly from the amplifier and doesn't have an internal amp. The connections are probably the same type as for any other speakers. And, there are probably additional connections for the rest of the speakers. The connection on your amp is likely an RCA phono plug connector that sends low level signals to a powered subwoofer. To connect a passive subwoofer, one without a built-in amp, the main speaker outputs connect to the subwoofer and are then sent to the regular speakers connected to additional terminals on the subwoofer. You may need an owner's manual for the subwoofer to determine how it should be connected.
this subwoofer has a built in crossover variable from 50hz to 150hz which means
that any signal you feed it the sub it will ignore anything but bass anyway. As for the
connection it is made quite difficult if you don't already have an amplifier
powering your other speakers, usually home cinema amplifiers have a low level
pre out for subwoofers, for which you would just need a phono to phono cable. However if
it doesn't and you have any type of amplifier with at least 2 separate left and
right speakers you can connect the wires from these into the subwoofer and it
will output the bass from these 2 channels. Another
option is to use a mono to stereo (2 to 1) phono cable where the 2 connectors
at one end connect to a tape or record output on your amplifier and the single
phono at the other connects to the subwoofer, the same would go if you have a
red & white phono (RCA) output on your TV you could also use this to power
the sub, in the worst case scenario you could use a single to single phono or
rca cable to connect one of the output channels (left or right) on your TV to
the subwoofer however this would mean that the subwoofer would only output bass
from either the left or right channel.
As I implied earlier, take a clue from the physical style of connectors for both parts of the subwoofer function in the old and new receivers:
RCA connections are for Line Level signal between components only.
The input (bare wire) at the speaker is for AMPLIFIED signal.
You can't just modify one to fit the other and expect magic to happen. Be glad you didn't do it the other way around and modify an amplified (speaker level) outout into a Line Level input. You likely would have smoked that component.
Your subwoofer is a passive speaker, that is, like any other speaker it needs an amplifier. Many subs are self-powered (amp built-in) and they would mate well with the RCA sub output of the receiver.
Get yourself an Active (self-amplified) Subwoofer and run UN-MODIFIED RCA cables to it, according to its instructions, from the Sub Out of the receiver. Or get an amplifier between your receiver and the sub you have.
You can use a 2 x male RCA to RCA female adaptor lead(what you need to ask for) like this one
use it to jumper your pre-out/main in connection on the rear, and connect an RCA lead to the Female socket on the adaptor lead. That will get you going. You can get them most places that sell electronic bits and peices. I am happy to answer any questionsa you may have
You need to connect the turntable to a PHONO input on your amplifier. Not all amplifiers have a phono input, if yours doesn't you need to get an RIAA pre-amp to plug your deck into & this connects to your amplifier.
This is because although the audio outputs on the turntable look the same as all the other components, they are very different. The signal has not been amplified up to line-level like tuners, CD players, tape decks, etc. You need to get this thin, weak signal boosted.
Your 3 options are:
* Connect directly to the PHONO input on your amplifier if you have one. If you don't:
* Connect deck to a RIAA amp (also called a phono stage) then connect to any input EXCEPT phono on your amplifier
*Connect the deck to a DJ mixer then hook the mixer up to any input on the amp EXCEPT phono.
