If the Pioneer has only one sub output connect it via a single RCA to the mono one. If it has two outputs (L&R) connect it to the L&R on the sub via a dual lead.
The other connections on the sub are for those amps without a dedicated sub output.
The manual for the sun can be seen online.

Based upon your description, the subwoofer is just a speaker and is taken from the normal speaker outputs. Run your A channel to the sub and then from the sub to the left and right front speakers. That should do it.

Yes, go to your menu then setup then speakers then subwoofer, it's probably in "LFE" it should give you the option of Sub, LFE, or Both. that should do the trick. Also check the crossover point and season to taste. While your at it; there should also be a setting for speaker level, toggle down to sub and adjust the sub out level, it's probably at it's minimum setting. Hope this helps

Rear Surrounds are not supported on this unit, they would be the 6th and 7th channels in a 7.1 rig. I think you mean Surrounds (channels 4 and 5 in a 5.1 rig).

Lets ponder: How is there any relationship between Surrounds and your separately-amplified Subwoofer? I don't see it, unless you inadvertently chose OFF for the Sub definition when you were in the Speaker selection menus adding the Surrounds. Look again.

Not sure what a "sub dvd' is but here's the manual. The Subwoofer Pre Out would provide a Line Level feed for a powered subwoofer, once it is configured to do so.
