Default coil tap question.

In my LTD I have a HSH set up it used to be HSS but added a mini humbucker at the neck. Anyway, I took out the tone and have a push/pull volume pot and have the neck and bridge for coil split. I have another mini humbucker coming and was thinking about replacing the single coil with it. So my question is can I still use the same push/pull pot for all three humbuckers to split them? Thanks.

Do the mini hums have four conductor wiring?
I think it's possible, but I haven't looked.

Besides, if you can split the neck and bridge,
what's the point in having a split for the middle?

Sure you can, all you are doing is shorting half the pickup to ground or turning half off however you want to look at it. Doesn't make any difference how many are on it.
