    Hello All, apparently I really suck at bass wiring AND searching for information, because this problem is stumping me. I've replaced plenty of pickups before, but this issue is a new one for me. Now that the disclaimer is out of the way... :D

    I picked up a pair of Bart 59J1 L/LN pickups to put in an active Warwick Rockbass. When I got the bass, it was sans-pickups, so I don't know what was in there previously, and I have no reference to check.

    The wiring diagram that came with the pickups shows a passive J configuration, but I can't find any information on how to integrate these pickups (single coil?) into the active circuitry of this bass.

    Any help you guys could offer would be mucho appreciado

    Thanks for the link! Unfortunately, all the active bass diagrams show multi-wire active pickups, not the 2-wire configuration of the Barts.
