Chances are there may not have been anyone that has done that has been on the past few days. The forums here have slowed down quite a bit.

Chances are you can and it won't hurt them, but you could always email the manufacturer and ask if they can handle the higher voltage... they tend to be the best place to get information.

I'd say you need to email Seymour Duncan and ask them, just to be safe. All the wiring diagrams for the Dave Mustaine Livewires use 1 9v battery, but the diagrams for the regular Livewires show them running on 2 9v batteries. So I don't know what to tell you other than to ask SD.

I've done It, and Im very pleased with it, my ltd with emg's had more power but lacked a lot of tone, and my dean lacked power but had tone, with this mod the power of an emg and the tone of a sd live wire join, sound beautifull

The mod wont make them hotter, you need Blackouts for that. SD designed their actives to be non-responsive to 18v mods.

Oh and wait for the Schecter fan boys, if you listen real hard you can already hear them coming.

well, they do sound different and blackouts can't be 18v modded
