Too bad it doesn't work with other subs!
Do I understand correctly that I just run the 8033 setup first, then run MCACC after the 8033 has eq'd the sub? Does the sub gain have any bearing on the 8033 calibration, or is it OK to adjust once MCACC is complete? Is there anything to turn off or on in MCACC to no conflict what the 8033C is doing to the sub signal already?

I don't use this form of EQ for my Pioneer Elite avr but, I have found that trying to EQ to a flat response may not give the best results. I don't think you can treat the MCACC program like the people do with Auddysee. MCACC and Auddysee do not approach bass management in the same way. The standing wave function can do some things for the bass in the room that EQ cannot do.
Doesn't minidsp work for the whole freq band but the 8033 just the bass?

MiniDSP can be configured to work over any frequency range, but is more often used for subwoofer, and allows the AVR to eq above the crossover. There are different types of miniDSP. The common one for subs is called the 2 x 4 version, which has 2 inputs and 4 ouputs. It works very well with REW. I spent a couple hours with mine eq'g my new sub and will be experimenting a lot this Wednesday. The first result I got was pretty good though, even though I think I can get my response a lot flatter.
See Q & A in the attached link to the part listed on Parts Express. "This unit does not have a pmanual parametric EQ function like the other feedback destroyers that are used for this, so unfortunately it will not work for that application."
