I've got my Pups worked out for my LP

A Dimarzio XN2 Bridge Pickup and a Dimarzio D activator X Neck. the Machine that can do decent cleans.

All i need now is a wiring diagram, any of you guys got one? I'm planing on Going 2 tone two volume and i think 250K pots are used.I'm not sure about capacitors though, it said .022mfd, i don't know .022uf?

I can't find a DiMarzio diagram - there may be one, but translating color codes is easy:

http://www.seymourduncan.com/support/wiring-diagrams/schematics.php?schematic=color_codes
http://www.guitarelectronics.com/category/wiringresources.11pickupcolorcodes/

Then here's a 2 X 2 diagram:

And another:

http://www.stewmac.com/freeinfo/Electronics/Wiring_diagrams/i-1217.html
When Stew-Mac shows four separate wires each grounded to the volume pots, they mean it in a metaphorical way - I sure hope so, cause it'd be a dumbass way to get the work done. Ground the wires together and solder one to the pot...

Here's a capacitor translator:

Here are ALL the wiring links (except not that capacitor translator, and the Ibanez, and a few others):

DiMarzio will tell you how to wire it like an Ibanez, with coils combined  out of each pickup, click on the X2N and look at the PDF "Installation" pages.
Ibanez will give you a diagram for the coil-combinations using a 5-way:

I know that clicking through "guitar->2000->RG741" will get you one of them.

All that helps, but also, just to be sure, i'll try and get in contact with the guys at dimarzio. I have looked at their page diagrams, but they only show the same diagram (i think) For both pups wired up to 1 vol and 1 tone.

Another thing you can do is write down a 'translator' key for the color coded stuff. Figure out which color in dimarzio-land = which color in Duncan-world. Then use the seymour duncan wiring diagrams, you'll find what you need there.

(Unless those pickups are something other than straight passive pups. I don't know, not really familiar with the dimarzio catalogue)
