    well, 5.4 is a harness number. It describes the pre-wired config. You're definitely using some variant of the 918 ntmb family.

    If you look at that wiring diagram page, you'll see that they all show wiring the mid freq switch the same way.

    Even if the frequencies are different, I'd assume the wiring would remain the same.

    I know Bart do tweak their preamps for individual bass manufacturers, like Lakland. So maybe that's the case here?
