    I'm having the same problem, but I have bass, treble stacked pots and low-mid high-mid stacked, The stacked low-mid and high-mid isn't in the instructions and I don't know how it connects. Also there are only 3 wires running from each pups and the Mike pope balancer board needs 4 wires for each...PLEASE HELP!!!!

    It connects the same way as the separate ones. Orange on the EQ board to orange on the stacked mids board. Doesn't matter which goes to where.

    Nowhere does it say that the balancer board requires 4 wires per pickup :)

    The pickup wiring is laid out really clearly on the instructions. Just take a careful look. You need to know what the wires for your pickups do, and then hook them to the appropriate places on the screw terminal. You may not fill all the holes. If you don't know what the wires on the pickups do, you'll need that information.

    I designed this thing to be pretty intuitive. When in doubt, hook like colors to like colors. Or look carefully at the circuit board itself. I was careful to label most things when possible. On the stacked mid board, it is clearly labeled "Hi Mid" and "Lo Mid" right next to the orange connectors. Volume board jumpers are labeled "mst" and "bdg" for "master mode" or "bridge PU vol mode" respectively.

    It's fairly hard to mess up to a point of hurting anything unless you start modifying wire harnesses or something. Just don't run any wires between the balancer board and EQ board besides the 5 pin harness.

    Just before reading this I had the break through I needed. Thanks though. I do feel like I'm missing a wire, Just 1 cable is needed to connect the EQ board to stacked pot?

    No. You should have three 4 pin harnesses. One for balance to volume, and one for each midrange control. No?

    Still not sure which of the wires are Hot, tap, I'm thinking they don't require a ground wire. I'm attempting to run Victor wooten style (EMG's PAX and LJVX pups)
