    I have search and searched . I'm not very good with electronics so I need it explained for a simple mind. I would like to wire this to coil spit in series as opposed to switching series/parallel. This is a 2017 Warwick $$ Corvette RB. Can anyone help me? Sorry for such a big pic.

    Has nobody done this or is it just not a good idea?

    Thanks for taking the time to do that. I am going to give this a try. I'm not tech savvy so this makes it easy.

    @ex-tension.
    Thanks so much. I just wired to your schematic along with switching the 250k push pulls out to 500k. What a difference. This is what I was looking for. Thanks for your help.

    Congratz! I'm glad it worked and you like it. Hope you feel a little bit more tech savvy now. :)
    How do 500k pots work for you, do they increase and decrease the volumes gradualy, do they blend pickups well?

    500k pots made a huge difference. Really brightened things up. The stock 250k pots sounded very muffled and lot of low end. The sweep is pretty well balanced with a gradual volume increase. I got the new 500k pots at my local bass store. They are nothing special , just $6 made in China replacements. I will probably opt for some better pots down the road but these did the job for the time being.
