    so, i bought one of these to install into my warwick thumb5

    now, the aguilar "instructions" don't mention how to hook this up to active pickups. where does the power to the pickups come from? the battery? positive or negative? how do the pickups switch on/off? also, can i run 18v into my active pickups? they are obviously meant for 9v, but this aguilar preamp wants 18v. do i send just 9v to the pickups & 18 to the preamp?

    ugh... i get crappy tone, lots of buzz and it's all distorted.. hellp!!

    oh, also i'm running the preamp with one battery (9v) .. is this ok, or does it HAVE to run @18v?

    ok, i just realized i'm an idiot. hooked up wrong.

    I'm still wondering about the pickup 9v & preamp @18v question tho...
