Would it be possible to make your pickups active by just soldering a 9v/w battery clip to your normal circuit? Sounds dumb but I think it would sound cool if you could actually do that.

the 9v runs the preamp inside the pickup on actives so i'm guessing no since there isnt a preamp in passives.
i used to be a mod, then i took an arrow in the knee.

EMGs have small preamps under the cover, that is why there fully enclosed....
So if you want to make you pickups active you have to put a preamp in them change the pots and get a stereo jack and a 9 battery

But i wouldn't make your pickups active cause EMGs are wound with less DC resistance and output, which preamp makes up for, so if you put a preamp and 9Vs into a standard pickup you will get VERY high outputs, way to much
