I'm looking to get new pickups to replace the powersound pickups in my Ibanez.. A neck and bridge, both humbuckers.

I play stuff from classic rock to CoB stuff, so versatility is key here. Preferably a High output bridge, for heavier distortion, and a clear neck pickup that will be best for blues and cleans. A couple freinds have said to replace them with EMGs or Dimarzio D-activators.. but i'm not really sure that'll fit my style the best. Oh, and preferably passive pickups.

I'm currently using a roland cube, but I'm hopefully getting a Vox DA20 sometime soon.

Try a Seymour Duncan JB in the bridge and 59 in the neck. It's a fairly standard combination, pretty much every guitar that comes stock with seymour duncan uses this configuration, and with good reason.

The JB is really tight and has this "crunchyness" to it. It's not very good clean, but it's great with distortion. Its good for everything from Van Halen to Children of Bodom.cThe 59 is good for cleans and bluesy overdrive tones.

This sounds good, I've always liked the sound of Duncans.

JB + '59 = Sweet

The JB carries plenty of distortion for metal and if you wanted you could wire it so the coils could be split.

Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge and a Dimarzio Air Norton in the neck.

Classic/heavy-rock monster combo with some nice creamy leads ala the alnicos in the Air Norton.

Because I bend in such an unorthodox fashion; the notes kinda slide up and slide down...

I like the Vox modeling amps... what's wrong with them?

This could maybe work too...

nothing's wrong with vox's amps really. I have never tried the da series, I have an ad50vt which I love, i haven't found an amp above a grand that I like more. The clean channels are really awesome and the distortions are OK, but get a nice overdrive and you'll be in heaven.

and i wouldn't recommend a super distortion, I have one in my Ibanez and it's kinda fizzy. If I were to go back I'd get a Tone Zone in the bridge. Nicer sound overall IMO.
