So I just bought a new receiver and speaker set to replace my Bose (I know, I know, it was a gift) surround sound system. I purchased a Denon AVR-1613 and the Klipsch HD Theater 1000 speaker set. I also have 100 ft. of 14 AWG speaker wire on it's way. My confusion is over how to connect everything. I assumed that the speakers and sub would just plug into the Denon receiver but the huge Klipsch subwoofer has a lot more inputs and outputs than I expected. I bought a cable to connect the sub to the receiver and I assume that the sub out is where that cable runs from the sub to the receiver. I'm not sure if I should run the speakers into the sub and then into the receiver from the sub somehow or if I should just run the speakers and sub directly into the receiver. Can someone help clarify? Thanks in advance.

Your receiver has a subwoofer output jack. Run an RCA cable from the receiver to one of the line inputs on the sub. That's it. No other connections to the sub except the power cord.

The other speakers connect to the speaker terminals on the receiver.

Go watch some Game of Thrones after you get it all hooked up and let us know how it sounds...

Stand tall and shake the heavens...
