I have to older(10 years or so) Ensemble subs with red/black speaker wire posts. I just bought a Yamaha v465 5.1 receiver, and it has a(1) sub pre out jack. Is there a way to hook the subs to the receiver?

Is the subwoofer active (amplifier built in and power cord to an electrical outlet) or passive (just a woofer in a box with speaker terminal inputs)?

Then you'll need an amp. The RCA from the receiver will plug into the amp and then you'll use speaker wire from the amp to the sub. There are probably power ratings on the sub somewhere to give you an idea how powerfull an amp to buy.
