From what I remember, the PRS SE Custom 24's had the HFS/VB (SE) combo. The VB neck pickup is fairly low output, but more in the 'medium' range in relation to most neck humbuckers. The HFS bridge pickup is quite high output, say, medium-high or on the lower edge of 'high'. It is a pretty thick and powerful pickup.
The new 2017 SE's will have lower output 85/15's.
To answer your question, the pickups in the 2016 SE Cu24 are on the hotter side while the ones in the 2017 are on the lower side.
