  1. can you use active pups from 2 different companies on a bass or are they incompatible?

    What are the pickup manufacturers and models?

    Basically, you need to figure out what the impedances of the two pickups are. If they match, or nearly match, then you are okay.

    You should be able to get the impedances of these pickups online to verify. If I had to guess I would guess they will be okay.
