I just got my Jackson DX6 with a duncan distortion in the bridge. when switching pickups, the volume change is crazy. I don't want to compromise tone by lowering the bridge pup, so can I put my spare Dimarzio D Activator X for bridge in the neck position without it sounding crazy weird/loud? I can do it and just lower it a bit right?

Distortion: 16.6K DC Resistance

DAX: 14.51K DC Resistance

DC Resistance is not the sole determinant of output I guess because they'er not too different. For sure though, the DAX is lower output, but is it low enough not to sound like crap? or am I better off buying something else like a jazz or 59? I'd rather use what I have though.

Thanks.

yep, theirs no reason why not
the only reason it's designated as bridge is because it's output is balanced with the neck version to give you even volume
neck output<bridge output, and the DC resistance should be the other way around

Hm. I always thought that manufacturers eqed or wound the pickups slightly different, like adding a bit of highs to the neck or something of that sort, but I'll just try it later and see. If it fails, I gotta buy a new pickups.
