I am sorry but that system uses a cable that is propitiatory to that system only. To use a source unit with an rca sub input will require a subwoofer that utilizes just that as there is no cable to adapt these.

Unfortunately that is the only way. I try not to recommend these systems that use propitiatory cables because this comes up all the time that once they want to use another receiver it will not work or the cable was lost and there are no replacements available in many cases.

Thank you!
