Many preamps have a second output that doesn't go though the volume control. In the old days, this would probably be labelled as Tape Out, but many post-tape preamps also have a fixed (full) level output. Beware before you connect up
Make sure both outputs are variable.
And something else to look out for - if one is RCA and one is XLR they can't always be used at the same time.
Or sometimes the RCA and XLR will have greatly different gain so matching the speaker and sub output can be tricky.

Thank you both for pointing out some important stuff regarding subwoofer connections. Information like this is usually found in the owner's manual if you read it before connecting the item and using the stereo. But in our hurry to set up the shiny new component we sometimes miss something in the manual. Ask me how I know that. :-) Luckily most mistakes aren't serious and do no harm to the setup.
