If you want to run two subs you will need to use a splitter so that the subwoofer output on your soundcard goes to two things. You'd also need an RCA to 3.5mm cable since your subwoofer only has an RCA input.

 

Basically you'd need one of these: http://www.bsrsoft.com/help/photos/3.5mm%20splitter.jpg

And it just plays a constant rumble... nothing even close to the song, just blasts random tone.

Are you sure that you're plugging it into the orange subwoofer output? You will also need to set the software so it knows your speakers have a seperate subwoofer and sets a crossover in software, otherwise it won't output anything from the subwoofer output. The constant rumble probably means something is wrong with your cable. You should use either the red or the white RCA connector.
