    I have recently installed EMGX in my Fender precision and they don't seem loud enough I'll check the battery the battery has good connections seem to be OK I have a Sub Ray 4 and its fine.

    Check all quick connections, battery, and pickup height.

    Thanks, How do you like the Pickup in general? Compared to stock passive pickup?

    This is my second EMG is in this bass the first one was just a regular ENG active precision pick up this one is an EMGX . It's a little growly from my taste The other one was a bit smoother and but I ran it with Tapewounds. I changed to actives back in the days of Grunge and I needed a little more punch ran with bright flats in those days
