So, you don't have a powered Velodyne sub (with a built in amp?)
Without model numbers - I"ll guess that there are speaker in and out connections on the back of the sub.
You simply connect the left and right speaker wires from the receivers to the subwoofers input speaker wire connections.
Then connect your main speakers from the sub's Out (or "speaker"} connections so that the sub is in line with the speaker path.
Use the sub's crossover settings on the back till you hca a seamless blend of the sub to the speakers where it is hard to tell you have a sub other than you your music now has deeper bass.
Why do you need the Kenwood EQ? This is not a necessary piece as nobody really knows how to use it properly and it realy complicates how you use your system. Flashing lights look cool though, right?
If you really must complicate the operation of your system then connect the Tape output of your receiver to the tape input of the Kenwood EQ, Then connect the Tape output of the Kenwood EQ to the Tape input of your receiver - assuming your receiver even has tape ins and outs.
You can engage the Kenwood EQ by inserting it into the audio path when you select the appropriate Tape input as the source on your receiver.
I have a similar problem with my Kenwood Basic M1D , C2 setup. Move the input select switch through all of its selections a couple of times, this will clean the contacts and should give you a couple of years more life. Or get the Amp serviced there are some very good small Hi-Fi shops. Incidentally the earphone port is usually a signal taken before the amplifier but after the pre amp so is unaffected by the power amplifier. Unfortunately it could aslo be a failed channel in the amp. These can be repaired or replaced and will be cheaper than a new unit.
According the the Cerwin Vega manual for this model and others, all speakers in the system are rated at 8ohms. This includes the Sat4 Surround Speaker and all other channels.

You can also call them for information as well.
It sounds like your subwoofer acts as a receiver in its own right. Many low-budget home theater systems act this way, and it may in fact have a Dolby Pro Logic II encoder in it. Your best bet is to hook up either the speakers it came with, or purchase speakers from your local audio visual store. Check its power rating per speaker (in watts) in your manual, and purchase speakers that are rated for it.
The "red and white" input you mention are RCA connectors, and should allow you to connect a source to your system. If you have any more specific questions, please post them here.
