I'm a complete noob to this, just found this out yesterday. I searched the forums and there isn't one that tells you how to do it.
I want to know from guitarists here that have done it and if they could explain it to me.
I have a Jackson KVX10 King V and was thinking of getting SD Blackouts. This mod however, high gain and increased headroom caught my attention and I want to know more! >: )
So I plan to get and mod both EMG85 and EMG81.
Oh by the way, I haven't soldered in my life before.

dude. Get the pickups and the EMG wiring kit. When everything is wired up like normal add another 9 volt battery in series next to the original one and that will give you the 18 volts you want

So what I'm basically doing is connecting two 9volts together and outputting the battery voltage to the pickup? Sorry I am so noob at this....

The batteries have to be wired in series as well. If they are wired in parallel, they will only extend battery life and the mod won't work.

RealDeal, check out Fig 3: on this page...

Is that "series" or "paralel".

Thanks.

Both Figure 2 and Figure 3 are in series..

Figure 3 is actually a really smart idea. I haven't seen that before or thought about doing that.
