You've already learned the most important thing: the way you set up your bass is by listening to it! If you want to know how high to set pickups you can go on Youtube and see what people recommend (Sadowsky, for example sets to about 1/8" between poles and strings) but the true test is you adjust it one way and try it for a while and then adjust it some other way and try it for a while. There is no rule. The whole thing depends on what YOU think good tone is, how hard you play, how low you like your action and a bunch of other things.
So you do the "art" thing. You choose a setting and listen and play it and try another and do the same and keep doing it until you finally say, "THIS is the one". And then, of course, for you it is.
