My Euro5 has the Tone Pump with EMG 40DC's. You really have to be polite when playing it 'cause this thing's hot! If I dig in a bit too hard, my amp gets in the red zone real fast (my amp doesn't have an input gain and lowering the bass' two volume controls equally is a pain in the arse). I naively thought that upgrading to 18V would help, but Firkinahsoul advised against it, saying it would increase the already hot-as-hell signal. I was thinking about switching the 'Pump to an EMG BTS, and while I'm at it, I figured maybe I could switch the pickups for a 40P5 and a 40J. I had a Godin BG5 with that combo and it sounded really sweet. I will let you know if I take the plunge, but meanwhile, let's discuss what's your favorite electronic configuration for your Spector.
