EMG 85 volume problems

Ok, i've just wired up a pair of EMG 85's to a mates washburn, wired up exactly to the diagrams 2 volume and one tone, 3 way les paul style selctor. they sound great and it all works fine when clean but when i distort it and turn the volume down the volume drops but doesn't 'kill' you can still hear it. why is this? i've gone over it times now and cant see that i've done anything wrong, the only thing i can think of is that its the pots? i've used the 25k ones supplied.

Any ideas on this would be much appretiated

Cheers, John.
