Seymour Duncan SH-4 JB, and Seymour Duncan SH-13 Dimebucker.
obviously id be putting the dimebucker in the bridge position. would this combination give me any problems?

what about a DiMarzio Evolution in the neck position?

im looking for something that would give me aggressive, heavy tone in the bridge position, to leave the neck one for lead and cleans.

thoughts?

The Dimebucker is a truly disgusting pickup, and the JB is only really good for putting in the bridge on a guitar you will only ever solo on.

Also, if you really do have an S470 with EMGs (does the middle single coil even work) then I doubt you can do much more to get a heavy and aggressive tone out of it, especially running into a 5150.

This.

But, if you do still want to go with passives, try a DiMarzio Super Distortion or Breed bridge, and a SD '59 or DiMarzio Air Norton neck.

You have an S470 with EMGs? Hows that working out?

I have a JB and '59 in my S470dx... which I also play through a 5150.

In all honesty I really like the JB but it didn't blow me away as much as I expected. I'm thinking it might be too high output. Don't put a dimebucker in there.

the '59 in the neck is amazing for soloing and Dave Murray-type leads IMO.

I also agree that iron maiden are gods.

Don't put the JB in the neck, it'll sound like crap. It's meant to be a bridge pup.

As for the Dimebucker...holy hell treble.

I'm hearing a steady *thump thump* from the people above me and I need some porno grooves to play on my bass to give them some background music. Any ideas?

Listen to the clean sound clip of the Dimebucker on the SD website, the thing is nothing but treble and has absolutely no low end. As for the JB, that's not a neck pickup in a million years.

Dimarzio Breed or D-sonic for the bridge, Breed in the neck.

the dimebucker in the neck position is actually pretty cool. It sounds like a really hot single coil
