The Yamaha is a "passive" subwoofer, and the Denon requires an "active" subwoofer- so more than a simple wire is needed.

Technician: Aric, Engineer replied 7 months ago

The Denon requires a sub with a built in amplifier, and the Yamaha does not have one. Trying to connect the sub out on the Denon to the speaker level inputs of the Yamaha will result in no sound unless and amplifier is used between them. I am pulling up a link to a suitable sub amplifier now for you.

You would need an amplifier like the one at the link below (this is the only way to get the Yamaha "passive" subwoofer to connect and play from the Denon). You'll run an RCA cable from the Denon's sub out to the RCA Inputs on the amp, and then run regular speaker wires from the amp to the Yamaha subwoofer:
