    i know a couple of you have run across these and liked them. I finally decided to get the emg pj setup. what i thought was in this bass was passive emg designed pickups and an active circuit. Is this right? By putting active pickups in this bass i will have an actice circuit with actice pickups. Im thinkin this will be 2 batteries, 3 if i run it at 18 volts. Or do i even want to run it at 18 volts. Let me know if anyone knows anything about this.

    Okay, according to the installation notes for my EMG-40DCs, one nine volt battery will run both EMG active pickups and active tone circuit, but 2 wired in series for a total of 18 volts is recommended. You don't need to try to stuff 3 batteries in there...

    If you go to EMG pickups , you should be able to find a wiring diagram that shows how you would wire EMG's with an active onboard preamp/tone circuit. Good luck!
