Just installed my EMG P-bass P.U.'s. First I wired them up 9 volt, then as recommended on the instructions I wired them 18 volt. The pamphlet says 18V gives you more headroom (I have no clue what they mean by headroom, with respect to pick ups) and improves overall performance. The only difference I can tell is there might be a bit more range of tone. I'd be happy if anyone more experienced with actives can point out the difference between 9V, 18V and 27V. Thanks for any input.
