Ive been reading about this 18v mod and I want to know if it works with Blackouts and if it will do anything since apparently they do not need it. Anyone tried it or know if will do anything for my tone?

try it, thats the only way to find out...i think it might sound pretty good, but no matter what, it will have an effect on tone.

check out the 18v mod thread (search it) to see if anyones tried this.

Where could I find the voltage rating?

And I read through the 18v Mod thread and there was nothing about anuone actually doing this on their guitar.

since they are meant to be a direct swap for emgs, they should be able to handle it.

do you have a multimeter?

Blackouts were made to combat the 18v mod on EMGs. You shouldn't need to do it. I think I remember reading somewhere that it doesn't do much of anything

I think I recall reading it that it can be done to them, but doesn't make a huge difference as w/ EMGs.

Seymour Duncan say that there is no appreciable difference of doing the 18V mod to blackouts

that said, you could email them and ask what the pups are rated at, and then try the mod your self.
