98 RG 570, Air Norton True Velvet Tone Zone

I have a 98 RG 570 with Air Norton True Velvet Tone Zone in place of the original pick ups and for some reason the single coil true velvet in the middle sounds super thin and the 2 and 4 positions on the switch have almost no change in tone. Is there a better middle pick up to use or could there be a wiring issue? One other difference is that the original 5 way has been replaced also, don't know if that makes a difference or not. Thanks for any advice

Switch the wires around on the single coil

it sounds like the it is backwards or was not reverse wound
