DiMarzio Neck Pickup
I recently bought an Ibanez RGD321 and althought the stock pickups are fairly deacent, I want to get some nice high output passives in there.
I'm pretty set on getting the X2N (I love Chuck Shuldiners tone) in the Bridge pickup and I was looking for opinions as to what would be a nice neck pickup to get.
Style: I play metal; mainly old school Death metal (think early Death/Obituary/Morbid Angel) I also play Thrash metal and Melodic Death metal. I'm not overly fussed about acheiving awesome cleans. Just want my axe to sound metal as all hell.
Budget: I can't afford Bare Knuckles, but, apart from that...
The other alternative I was looking at were the EMG HA-H4/ HA-H4A combo, but I'm quite keen on the DiMarzio X2N.
SO! let's here your opinions!

Active means more 'gain' but often times more mush. I'm sure you can get where you want to be with a high-output passive
