    I was supplied with a cable for connecting between my AV receiver and Sub, this is a single cable with one plug on each end, do I connect the 'Sub end' into the line in, if so which socket L or R??

    :confused:

    Use a "Y" adapter.

    That depends on which type of sub you have but on most it doesn't make much difference.

    If your sub has and you use 'auto on' feature then use a 'Y' adapter as this will help to prevent the sub switching off during quieter scenes/music. Else just read the manual to see if it recommends one or the other, if not then just choose one.

    The Sub is a Mordaunt Short MS308. It Does have an auto/on switch. The manual does not mention Y connectors, or recommend how/which connection to use (L or R or both).

    Then as I said above use a 'Y' connecter if useing Auto or if not just use either of the inputs, it does not matter which one.

    Better still don't use the Auto On/Off and leave the sub On all the time, no harm will come to it, connect the lead to "L" seems to be the general rule.

    Also if your cable was supplied with the sub it might be an idea to purchase a better quality one, one that has decent sheilding. ;)
