So by hotter, do you mean more hairy / wooly, or saturated? 

So if you were to plug them into a high headroom clean channel, they would be noticeably louder than the Juggs?  I'm just asking because I found them to be very powerful in all the situations where I've used them.  They're also very clear and articulate, so there is incredible core and note definition in the sound.  So, they maybe don't sound as 'gainy' or 'hairy' under high gain but still, super powerful pickups.

Louder yes, but i was more referring to how the bridge handles hardcore punk breakdowns and stuff like that. that tends to be how i judge output differences in a metal context. If it requires more consistent harder picking i say its a bit lower output relative to something like a titan

That's a common experience coming from other brands. BKP's are so clear, dynamic and keeping the noteseparation that it seems they 'eat' some gain of your amp. Once you are used to that, you don't want to go back.

Didn't really find that they "eat" preamp gain. and yea, im changing all of my guitars to bare knuckles after getting these cause goddamn :laugh:

OK, so you are talking specifically about compression.  The Juggerset is quite dynamic so you do need to dig in to get 'that' sound. 
Apparently, the idea of the Ragnarok set was a more compressed pickup that is easier to play.

Ya.  Totally.  I swapped out the pickups in all my guitars already because it's crazy good!!
