    The quad coils have 4 coils in each pickup where the plit coils are like a P-bass pickup in a box. Go to
    You can get much of the info there.

    i have an Ibanez btb406 bass, its a 6 string, i am not sure if i should keep the pickups the bass orignally comes with, or it would be better to change to the bartolini XXM56M. I play music that requires a deep low tone, but i also need some good highs because i play some slap too. If i should change pickups what pickups should i use the quad coil or the split coil. Or maybe some other good pickups.
