This may sound stupid, but how do you hook up a Sub to a TV/Receiver?

Thanks in advance!

There are a few components to the system - You already have the tv with the audio source (audio out). Next you need an amplifier - either a home theatre amp, or one designed specifically for home theatres that just takes an audio input - and either hooks up a subwoofer or has one built in. Then you hook THAT to your subwoofer - and it amplifies the sound, and gives you some awesome low tones. You want to remember though, you need full range sound - or videos and movies sound dumb - all bass, and no 'definition' (treble).
