This is my receiver which has 1 sub-woofer pre out....http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
This is my sub-woofer which has right left connectors...which equals having to run 2 cables/connectors to the sub-woofer....http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
My question is being as though my subwoofer has 2 cables that need to be run to the receiver...how do I hook it up/connect it if my subwoofer has only 1 plug/pre-out.
I have 10-15 RCA cables and Monster cables around my house.The answer is not as simplified as just connecting A to B...if that were the case then I would not be asking the question.Someone said for me to use RCA jacks...well,same existing issue..2 connectors 1 pre-out.What to do?

You are going to use a "Y" cord...(link)
http://www.amazon.com/C2G-Cables-03177-Series-Y-Cable/d...
Two female RCA connectors -to- One RCA male connector
The male connector plugs into the sub output at the receiver...
The two female connect to your stereo RCA patch cord, to the sub inputs.
Available at radio shack or other electronics store, or order from internet...

As far as "monster" cable, or other overpriced cable, it's a complete waste of money. It accomplishes nothing.
Inexpensive cables, from RS or Walmart, have gold plated RCA plugs, Will work just as good as any expensive cable. There is no difference in the sound or performance.
