Use A speakers for mains. Use the B's for your sub. Or you could try some rca's from the tape rec to your sub.

Or just hook both your speakers and the sub up to A. Doesn't really matter, as I doubt the sub would drop resistance enough to make a difference on stability.

Just use two sets of speaker cables coming out of your amp's front channel - one to the sub and one to the speakers.

EDIT: Oh wait, are you going to be using all 4 channels?

Try the rca's before buying more speaker wire. Put your cd into tape in and rca's to from tape rec to your sub. That might work.

If you go out of the Tape monitor you probably could.

I wouldn't advise you to use the Tape Out as suggested. The subwoofer won't turn up when you turn up the volume. The only way for it to function properly is to just use the speaker wire connections with that amplifier.

You can go one of two ways:
Speakers and sub into Speaker Set A
Speakers into Speaker Set A, Sub into Speaker Set B

Both will work just fine. With them on two seperate channels (A and B), you will have the option to turn one set off (speakers or subwoofer). With them wired both to Set A, you won't have that option, but you'll have Set B available for future full range speakers (if desired).

Don't use the Tape Monitor, you'll have no control over the volume of the sub the Tape Monitor will be sending a full 0db output to your subwoofer which will probably cause it to blow if you're not careful. Just do as others have said, run one set of cable from your speaker out "A" to your speakers, and then wire from your speaker out "b" to your sub. BTW that should be a good sounding sub. I've got a full Energy Speaker system in my living room and haven't wanted another speaker system since. They make awesome stuff.

Oh yeah, I kind of forgot that those outs are pre-fader. Go me.
