X2N + TZ ?

I have a RG42FM who came with inf1 & 2 pickups.
I recently switched them to a X2N (bridge) and a Tone Zone (neck).
I really love the TZ but i'm not quite sure about the X2N.
What i want is a great, heavy & fat rythm tone.
Can i achieve this with the X2N ?
I play through a Traynor YCV80 tube amp, maybe the amp is not "heavy" enough? Any other advice to reach the kind of tone i want?

thx !!

I would try the Tone Zone in the bridge. It was designed as a bridge pickup to accomplish just that.

The X2N (I have one) is great for fast single note stuff, as long as you aren't tuning down. Since it has such a high output, it's less dynamic, so everything sounds nice and even (same volume).

Put the Super Distortion in the bridge and find something with an even lower output for the neck.
