First of all, if you are deliberating between active & passive pickups, there is little doubt on most of the Bass forums that the consensus is overwhelmingly in favour of Active EMGs. Even if you don't have a battery recess in your bass, the 9V battery can easily be accommodated inside a standard tone pot cavity. I did this with my Peavey Grind 5 string, simply purchased a plastic 9V battery holder from Ebay, then epoxied it to the inside of Tone pot cavity cover.
Its firmly in place and does not interfere with the pots.
But the sound... its fantastic. Replacing the indifferent pickups in the Peavey with a pair of 40DC's was the best upgrade I ever made, the range of tones, clarity, sensitivity and quietness, you can't really beat these, without spending 300 or more Euros on boutique electronics..
I play metal, doom and technical death varieties, the low end growl I get now is priceless! Also, the solderless electroncs system and pot set is just another reason I love these pickups! Its all included and was a joy to set them up. Only one thing! They require weird US sized nobs, the two tiered, `Babel' style - single barrel nobs wont fit -

Great Pickups! I use them in my 5 String tuned in Drop-C with Stainless-Steel-Strings. The Neck-Pickup has a veeery deep Sound and gives you a fat low-End, the Bridge-Pickup is full of Mids and Highs with really much Attack.
I use these Pickups with a Pu-Balance-Poti and turn it a little bit to the Bridge Pick-Up. With a little Bit of Bass-Boost and High-Cut at the EQ of my Amp i get exactly the Sound i want: A loud Low-End with punchy Mids. (I play Metal, mostly). Compared to the Pick-Ups that i used before the EMGs (some China-Stuff i bought with a "Build-Your-Own-Bass"-Kit) the EMG-Tone is very clear and I hear myself much better on Stage than before.
