I had a VSX-1021k for years and had this issue for a while. It took me a while to figure out the ins and out of the receiver but there are a couple solutions. Here is what I would recommend:
1.Run MCACC. When it completes you will need to make some manual adjustments.
2.Change front channels to Small and Sub to Yes, OR front channels to Large and Sub to Plus
3.Set crossover to 80.
4.Check speaker level. Possibly increase the sub level.
5.Make sure your listening mode is NOT Pure Direct or Direct. Flip through several options until you hear what you want.
At one point the bass went out after all of these steps. The default pioneer warranty is pretty good. I took my proof of purchase to an authorized pioneer repair shop who told me that basically my LFE out had shorted out because of a bad contact inside the receiver. Two days later it was back in my home and working perfectly. Hasn't has an issue since. Hope this helps!
