Phono cable from receiver's subwoofer out to the subwoofer's line input. Job done.

Make sure it's from the 'pre-out' section of the receiver.

Any dedicated subwoofer cable will do the job nicely.

Re: how to connect subwoofer

As already mentioned, any dedicated phono-to-phono single cable will do. Every cable manufacturer has at least one in its range.

Also worth checking that the subwoofer output on the receiver is on, that the level isn't set too low on either the receiver's subwoofer channel or the subwoofer, that there's enough level to trigger the automatic power/standby to switch on (or that the sub is in 'on' rather than 'auto' mode), and that whatever you're playing actually has some subwoofer content.
