I'm fairly new to the home theatre game and I'm quite confused about subwoofer connection. Do I need a specific subwoofer cable or will a normal RCA do? I've read something that said to use a y adapter with a subwoofer cable? Would that be better than a subwoofer cable alone? Also, I read something from polk audio saying that sub outputs on receivers aren't great and should be avoided?
I don't want to spend a lot of cash, but if someone could describe to me the best way to connect my receiver without spending, say over $40, I would really appreciate it.
My receiver does have a subwoofer out.
