According to another thread, you have a VSB200 sound bar. It appears to have inputs only, which means you can't run a connection out from the sound bar to the subwoofer.

Without knowing what receiver you have and how your sub is currently connected to it, I'll assume that:

- your receiver has an LFE out / subwoofer pre-out jack; and,

- your sub isn't actually powered by the receiver (that is, the receiver is sending a signal to the sub, which has its own built-in amp).

In that case, I suggest you leave the sub connected to your receiver (presumably to the sub out / LFE out jack) and run the digital or analogue audio connection out to the soundbar.
