Connecting Mission MS8 Subwoofer to Denon 2802 Receiver?

    Am a novice at this game and am totally confused as to the best way to connect the above sub to my Receiver.

    Looks like the sub has white and red phono sockets and also came with a "Y" adaptor with red and white connectors one end to just a single connector the other end.

    The manual states as follows:

    'Line In (Low level in) - These RCA stlye sockets are designed to accept a line level signal from a receiver. When using a single line level output from another unit, you shoud use a "Y" connector to send the signal to both the left and right lin in sockets of the sub woofer. (Using the tape loop of a receiver or pre-amp is not recommended when connecting the sub woofer. Tape outputs typically send a constant level, regardless of the volume setting on the front panel, unlike the pre-amp outputs. This would affect the balance between the subwoofer and the rest of the system)' .

    ....Whoosh... totally over my head.

    Also somewhat confused as to which terminal(s) at the rear of the amp I should use - looks like there is a red terminal for the sub but above that is also a white terminal which seems to be for 'Centre' - nothing to do with the Sub?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated - this is one desperate guy with about £800 quids worth of kit bought at bargain prices sat in the middle of the lounge catching dust.

    Hi Fatbob
    The single phono connection marked sub out on the receiver is where you connect the single phono end.The y- splitter fits on the other end of the sub cable you then connect the two ends of the y-splitter in to the sub line in one red one white this will make the sub more sensitive to in coming signals so it wont turn off through quite passages when the subs in auto on.
    M ake sure you turn everything off before making any connections.
