Pickup Help, Evo2, What P/U for neck?

I need some help with pickups. I have a Epiphone Les Paul Prophecy GX, and im looking to replace the pickups. I already bought an Evo2 Dimarzio for the Bridge, and I was gunna buy a Breed Neck but im thinking in a Mahogany Les Paul that wont work. So any other suggestions that would work? I want something that will work with the Evo2? I like a sweet smooth tone with distortion with the tone knob rolled back, with a little more bite when its turned up. I like the Breed Neck tone, so are there any pickups that sound similar, work with my guitar (Les Paul) and work with my evo2?

I play hard rock, metal, mostly, but I still want good clean tones cuz I do enjoy all types of music. I have a Raven RG100, no pedals, but I want to get a Jemini.

Edit: Had another look at the dimarzio website. While they dont recommend the Breed Neck in the neck of a mahogany guitar, when I enter my guitar wood and specs etc and what kind of pickup i want, and that I want warmer/fatter (but I still want high output and sustain, but i just picked this option), the breed neck still came up. So anyone have experience with this pickup in a Les Paul? Im not quite sure anymore if it will or wont work.

Edit2: I have coil splitting set up on my guitar, but I havent seen any tutorials for wiring pickups for coil splitting, and the dimarzio manual was a bit confusing. I am proficient with a soldering iron. I guess itll make more sense once I open it up and can look at the wires other than visualizing it in my head.
