Exclamation HELP! Liquifire/'D-activator combo in Rg7321

So i just ordered/received a dimarzio d-activator 7, and a liquifire 7. I desoldered the old pickups and installed everything according to dimarzio's diagram that i found online and the neck pickup is WAY quieter than the bridge. what should i do? I've gotten quite frustrated with soldering by this point.

doesn't work, height is higher than the bridge and still nothing. a better way to describe it is that the output in general is half of what is should be.

Tap each row of pole-pieces with a screwdriver while plugged into your amp. Turn the amp up so you can hear it. Do both coils have the same volume for the tapping sound that comes through? If they don't it's wired wrong, if they are both the same but quieter than doing this to your bridge pickup you've probably got a bad solder joint somewhere.

i think it may be a bad connection, because the neck pickup works fine in when it's connected as parallel, but when it's just the neck pickup in series that's when i have the problem.
