so i bought the dimarzio hs-3 that was supposed to be for the bridge position in my american special stratocaster, but im a little sceptic about the low output, so i thought maybe i should put the hs-3 in the neck and get a higher output pickup for the bridge, but then my question is which pot configuration do i go ? i want the neck pickup to be clean and crystal clear, and the bridge pickup to have a more metal-ish high output sound, and i will keep my texas special in the middle position.

do i go with 500 k volume pot with 250 k tone for neck and 500 k tone for bridge? or is 250 k volume pot enough for noiseless single coil high output pickups ?

and also, any pickup recommendations for the bridge position ? is the hot rails cool ?

im not that experienced with guitars yet but thanks in advance
