I know you and me both use multiway fullrange speaker designs

I came to this 'conclusion' because I experienced my tone control having no real audible effect when playing on 2khz midwoofers

and btw ... this happens also with passive pickups ... difference is speakers

So what's wrong with it?, there's no obvious problem with the picture?.

don't know

maybe it works like intended ... and if so, that is definately not very good 'intentions'
either its just crap, or its got an error

but before ripping out its guts I will try and connect pickups through exstern pot and jack

It's funny how everyone else in the world buys a bass and it works perfectly, yet you seem to claim every single one you ever buy is faulty?.

Have you considered the problem is that you can't play them?

3 weeks ago I bought this bass

only made small changes, and adjustments
and apart from the feeling of ripping off my shoulder, its been a very nice experience
fully passive like I want it
feels very nice, and plays easy and fast, and with very long sustain when needed

the previous active bass(AriaProII)

this simple test shows that it will indeed work very well wired passive

new jack plug(Allparts) for my cheap J&D 5 string

and a nice DPDT switch (2-pole, ON-ON)
for choosing series or parallel connecting of the P split coil pickup on my new Squier Fender

its parallel connected now, which definately sounds cleaner, and faster
but I also thought the original series connection had 'something'
