My receiver has 1 preamp out for the sub but my sub has a left and right connection. Should I use a splitter and plug into both left and right for better sound?

Usually it makes no difference. Just use the one input.

Good. That's what I did. I also set my fronts and rears the receiver to large. Does that make a difference for sound? I'm new to this aspect of home theater. I've always own HTIB.

Your first question was easily answered by Tony, this second questions is a little more complex but it is usually recommended to set all speakers to small and run the xo around 80Hz.
First, conventional wisdom is to "Let the sub(s) do what subs do - handle the deep bass and lessen the AVR's amp's load for increased headroom for the remainder of the FR.
What speakers, sub and receiver do you have?

Fronts are Infinity Primus towers. Rears are the Klipcsh KS-14 rear surround. Sub is a pioneer 8" powered sub.

When I did the MCACC on my pioneer receiver It set all the speakers to large, I have a Klipsch synergy set up. The difference between "large" and "small" is rather the speaker can handle the full range or not.
