    The output from the receiver to a sub is mono so both left and right connections are not required because frequencies that are being redirected away from your other speakers are all mixed down into one channel by the receiver. Its usually suggested by subwoofer manufacturers to use the left RCA input, but you should check within the manual. The correct input to use is sometimes labelled "LFE". The two inputs are there in order that the sub can be used in conjunction with more conventional stereo setups that lack bass management.
