split-problem with new BKP's on my 827

I just recieved my first bkp's and put them in my ibanez rg 827.
They sound friggin' insane, with the exception when i put the pup-switch in the 2. Position and it should split the humbuckers, only activating the inner coils.
It seems though, that it is the outer ones that are activated, and there's hardly any output...

Anyone got any pointers...?

Did you install your bkps right? Lol. I know they are meant to be wired "bacwards". That said, expect a significant output drop when you split coils dude.

I actually just went for it and removed the magnet and flipped it on the neck pup.
It sounds monster, and i couldn't be more happy

Sounds like you just had some wires back to front and wired the pickup out of phase. Would have been easier to re-solder wires rather than open a new pickup, but hey, it's working now.
