    I am having trouble connecting a subwoofer to my receiver. The subwoofer originally came with a budget friendly surround sound system. The receiver is not the original included in the set. The subwoofer (Samsung) has only speaker wire attachments. The receiver has a "pre-out" plug spot.

    I ran the speaker wire into a phono-plug and plugged that into the pre-out on the receiver but that is not working.

    The pre-out (preamplifier output) is intended to be connected to a power amplifier input.
    The speaker in is intended to be connected to a power amplifier output.
    The missing element here is the power amplifier. Without one you will not be able to use the subwoofer.
