Re: RG1421 Dimarzio wiring(diffierent diagrams)
The 4th and 5th position would sound different. It might not be that noticeable. Whether it sounds better or not, that'd be 100% your opinion. The 5th position would only sound different because the coils use different pole pieces, otherwise it wouldn't matter. Petrucci prefers the bar towards the neck, so I'd probably keep it that way.
Also, your 4th position might be out of phase. If you like how it sounds then there's no problem. If you think it sounds too weak and thin, we can figure out if it is out of phase or not and get it fixed for ya. Are the wires leaving the pickup both on the same side?
