hooking up floor standing speakers w/powered subs

Im really confused with my Infiniti floor standing speakers. They have speaker wire inputs and then for the powered sub, they have sub input. But i dont have that many sub outputs on the back of my pioneer vsx-82txs receiver. I only have one subwoofer out in the preamp section of outputs. Where do i plug them into on the receiver? The front left/right preamp outs?

2002 4.6L 5 spd. S281

So fast, I make speedy gonzales look like regular gonzales

I have a digital "out " from the receiver to the sub. One wire, and that's it.

I can explain a bit better now that i did some research into what the hell im talking about. Ive got floorstanding speakers with powered subs. Ive also got a dedicated sub. My pioneer elite 82 reciever only has one sub output which is taken by my dedicated sub. My floorstanding speakers have an option of hooking up the powered subs in them via direct line input to the receiver. But since i only have one sub out spot on the back of my pioneer receiver, where do i plug the powered subs from my floor standings into? Would it be the pre-amp Front (left/right) output?

Are they rca jacks? Maybe get a splitter

They should have an "in" and an "out" RCA. If so, just run a wire from your "sub out" at the reciever to the "in" on the nearest tower. Then from the "out" of that speaker go to the "in" on the next. You can then go from the "out" on that one to another sub if you already had/have one. It's just a simple daisy chain.

If the above does not describe what you have, a splitter (about $5 at RadioShack) will do the trick.
