Default Hook-Up question

Allright, this is my first time trying to hook up electronics so I need some help here. OK, so I have just about all the electronics for a Tensor 4d, now, my question is: what do I hook up to the battery? I see two things that look like they could hook up to the battery, one on the reciever, and one on the speed control. Which of those two is the one to hook up, or do they both hook up? The reciever has a battery jack which is labeled, and the speed control has two wires, one red and one black, without any leads on the ends. I do not have the battery as of yet, because I'm waiting to see what the availibility of the 3cell Li-Po's. I'll need to know what to do with it though. I can't post any pictures, but I hope my description was good enough.

Thanks!

The battery is connected to the speed control and the receiver is powered when you connect the speed control to the receiver throttle channel. The switch harness supplied with the radio is not used in this application.
