I am really giving it up on the sub and drive to hsu research and exchange it for some thing else. Funny thing is that my older hsu vtf 1 sounds ten times better with loud lows etc. i try d different port modes and no different in output. :/
I’m not familiar with MCACC, so I don’t know how much I can be of help. Plus, I’m doing this without the benefit of my morning coffee. I have a Denon, but they should be similar in some respects.
After you run MCACC you shouldn’t change anything. You defeat the purpose of the auto cal. Leave the sub level where it is.
Check the crossover switch. Make sure that it is set to out.
Where did you receiver set the crossover at? If it’s less that 80Hz raise it to 80.
I’m also wondering if you may have some expectations that could be disappointing you. Like picture quality, audio quality will vary. Some soundtracks/music have awesome bass, others don’t have any. The rest fall somewhere in between. Use source material that has really good bass to test with. Here is a list of movies with good bass to use: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1333462/the-new-master-list-of-bass-in-movies-with-frequency-charts
Also, draw up a map of your room layout with dimensions and post it. There are a lot of knowledgeable people here who can make some recommendations on sub placement that will make a significant difference.

Hope that I’ve been of some help.
