Its a design in a humbucker to let you 'split' the wiring and magnets which lets you use it as a single coil.

More or less it!

I thought that was split?

It does split, effectively a humbucker is two singlecoils wired together, and a coil tap splits it so one of the 'singlecoils' is used.

use the search bar next time buddy. and no, that is incorrect. I'll use my explaination i posted in the last thread about this.

Coil split= Split the humbucker to sound like a single coil (strat pup)
Coil tap= take a single coil and ground out some of the windings so there are fewer turns picking up vibrations of the string, making it less hot.

if someone is saying a coil split, they mean a humbucker turning into a single coil. if they say a coil tap, its a single coil losing becoming lmore vintage sounding. but because people use them so interchangeably, you can pretty much assume they mean coil split when they say tap.

- fever turns cutting through the flux, so the maximum potential inductance is reduced.

I don't have anything significant to add, apart from the advice to be careful with your terminology, and don't interchange the two - they are NOT synonymous.
