I've got a BC rich guitar that has the stock actives and taking a closer look it appears that the connections is like an EMG or Blackouts. I was wondering if I can just unplug and replace the current pickups with EMG or Blackouts without rewiring or soldering. Hopefully this pic will help.

Have you asked the manufacturer of the pickup(s) you're considering? They'd probably know how to hook up their own products.

Does it use a 9V battery? Does it use 25K pots and a stereo jack? That's pretty much what matters.

Yeah the pots need to be 25k. But my guess is yes it'll probably work. If you connect it backwards it will not ruin or damage the pickup. It just won't work, so flip the connection around.
