HSH Pickup Suggestions

I play mostly metal, with touches of jazz, blues, classical hodge podge. My original setup was riddled with too many trade-offs. Switched to PAF Pros in bridge and neck, stock jackson single in the middle. Thinking about swapping the bridge pickup to an X2N. Would these pickups work well? also- when playing in positions 2 and 4 there's a noticable volume drop. Anyway around this? Do I need a higher output middle pickup (thinking about an injector) or do I just suck at wiring? BTW, I play through an old Randall 2x12 combo, the guitar is 24 fret maple neck, poplar body, schaller floyd.

Re: HSH Pickup Suggestions

Hi, maybe you can consider my HSH combo that also play for metal--rock--blues--jazz.

Neck: Dimarzio Evo (turned around backwards) >> solid bass with smooth high
Mid: Dimarzio Chopper (paralled) >> solid twang
Bridge: Dimarzio Breed >> punchy & fat for rhythm or solo

I really like Evo sound that can be quite jazzy with its tight bass, but you have to kill the presence first.
