Hi reclined,

This is a link to a manual for a system that used your subwoofer.
Page 10 shows Subwoofer hookup diagram.

Please note this manual is for several similar systems the one relevant to your subwoofer is the HT-930. I'm just pointing this out because at the bottom of page 10, there is this note:

=[HT930] [HT933] Even though the subwoofer shown is different, you can connect the speakers to the subwoofer in the same way.
