      Answer

      I used a regular RCA cable and plugged it into the 'subwoofer' jack on my receiver. Subwoofers are mono units, so you do not need 2 wires coming from them or 2 RCA plugs plugged into your receiver. use either the red or white side.

          Answer

          any speaker through a line input cable should work. It's just about preference, but you want to match closer to what type of speakers you have. If you spent 5 grand on speakers I wouldn't get the cheap one, but if you have 500 dollar speakers would prob be worth spending under 250, should be 50% for the sub or less. Otherwise just get a soundbar and sub, cheaper and most people can't tell the difference.

                If by powered you mean it has its own power AC source, then yes, but it is not very powerful. Does well enough in a smallish home theater room (12 x 15 feet)

                Hi philipt, Please check the rear panel of this subwoofer in the link below. https://docs.sony.com/release//SACS9.pdf Reverse polarity doesn't have effect to the sound. It creates a potential shock hazard, but it's usually an easy repair. Thanks, >Joffrey
