RG1570L pickup wiring for positions 2 and 4?

Hey guys, I'm trying to get an answer for this. I have an RG1570L that I'm swapping pickups in. I have a '59 4-con for the neck, an SSL-1L RWRP for the middle, and a distortion TB-6 bridge. I'm told that to get hum-canceling In positions 2 and 4 that I can either do the outside coils with this pickup, or exchange it for a regular SSL-1L and get the inside coils him-canceling. I'm interested in playing more Godsmack, Metallica, and some other kinds of metal tones. Thoughts?

Give the type of music you like I do not think a little background hum will be a big problem

Changing to the outer split coils will have a pretty large effect on the tone, which you might like or not. I suggest you put them in and see if you like the sounds it gives you.
Please do note that you probably want to have the slugged humbucker coils active in split mode. Also you can reverse the wiring of the middle coil hot=ground and ground=hot (change phase) and if it is symmetrical, put it in upside down. Another more SD guarantee killing option is to rotate the magnets of the humbuckers with 180 degrees.

I just saw a neat tutorial regarding properly lining up magnet poles for tonal changes. Pretty interesting, but also pretty involved.
