I bought a Dimarzio CrunchLab, and I've decided that I also want a neck pickup.

But I don't really know if I want the Liquifire, as there are different neck pickups. Would the D-Activator be any good with the CrunchLab? It's only $5 less, so it might be a little irrational to get a different pickup because of that.

So pretty much, Liquifire, or D-Activator? Unless there's some other neck pickup you would recommend.

Mostly metal, ranging from death to prog to, well, pretty much anything in the scope of metal.

In other words, I like something with high output, but with a lot of versatility.

After alot of listens i would say go with the Liquifire.
The D-Activator is very slightly distorted and not as defined as compared to the Liquifire.

Liquifire. the D-Activator (if i'm thinking of the right pickup) is designed to be a bridge pickup, and it's properties probably reflect that. if it's high in treble it might sound really strange and muddy in the neck.

something else to keep in mind: pickups using the same magnet types usually go well together. if the crunchlab and the liquifire use the same magnets they may blend better together. it's not a killer if they don't, they'll still work fine. but the middle pickup position might not be as smooth as you'd like.

EDIT: there's a d-activator bridge and neck i was thinking of the D-Sonic. always get those two mixed up. anyway, after looking around on Dimarzio.com i'd still say the Liquifire is the way to go, even though the two are using different magnet types. just think it'll give you a better and more smooth neck pickup. and, if you're like me, thats important because i use the neck pickup for almost all my cleans.
