    I have a new pair of 9L's , not yet fitted and out of curiosity, a mate tested them with a multi meter and the results were...

    Neck 3 ohm
    Bridge 4.3 ohm

    This seems well low - are they normally like that ? They will be teamed up with an Ag OBP-3

    FWIW:

    Never heard of 9L's (unless you're referring to 9J long's) but Bart's are typically low output. That sounds a bit much but they are what they are.

    Yup - they're labelled L1 and S1 - so i guess you're right on that. Praps i should have said 9J's -

    Ok - i'll live with it :D Maybe my pals multi meter is a bit fubarred :meh:

    FWIW: probably 9J#1 long and short. Pup output really isn't an issue unless you go swapping basses in a set without compensating volumn. You just turn up the amp and/or controls. You're running an onboard preamp with them so that's more compensation for output.

    This the first time i've had a bass with Barts and a preamp - dear lord this thing could maim :eek:
     
  7. I think you mean 3K and 4.3K ohm

    Yes, they are typically this low, hince the reason for their smooth output charactoristics.

  9. It will probably read 4.3 on the display but right below that should be X 1K
