if anyone was wondering why i ask this its becuase i want to put a active emg in, but still have a passive single coil in the neck for cleans. so i guess since its possible (hopefully) im going to see if i can figure out how to get it to work

Yes, but the pickups need different volume/tone pots and there would likely be a huge volume change from pickup to pickup...

EDIT: ^ That single coil would be so much quieter, it would be a pain to deal with.
