Default Exhaust Drone ?

I tried the search, but couldn't find the exact answer I was looking for. Which exhaust (axle-backs) sounds the best with the least amount of interior drone? Also, would an o/r H pipe add drone too? These are the questions I am looking for because I drive a lot and want to be able to carry on a conversation inside without the drone on the highway.
Thanks
-Eric

Corsa's have the least drone from what I hear people saying. I'm partial to SLP's myself. Sound AWESOME and no drone!!!

There's only 4 A/B set ups I know of that have no/minimal drone,

1. Corsa
2. Zoomers
3. FRPP GTA
4. SLP LM

All others you'd need to add resonators.

Is it possible to find Corsa's anywhere for a good price? Like say under $600??? They seem a bit on the expensive side, but I guess you get what you pay for.

I have no drone with mine, see below. But after I added the FRPP x-pipe the sound changed somewhat but still no drone. Enjoy

Corsa mufflers supposedly have no drone. However, they cost over $600! Also, I don't like the way the Corsas hang below the rear bumper, and they sound a little too quiet at idle and cruise.

MAC mufflers: Sound GREAT at idleand cruise. INCREDIBLE at wide open throttle! However, there is drone at 1800-2000 RPMs. After alot of research, I found out that all chambered mufflers will experience drone. A friend of mine wanted to keep the aggressive sound of the MAC chambered mufflers, but could not stand the drone so he changed his gears to 4.10 (which he planned on doing anyway),moving the drone range so it is not as noticeable or annoying.

I ended up changing my MAC mufflers to a set of Borla 11752 (street NOT stingers). At idle they soundmore aggressive than stock. At cruise, they sound pretty throaty. Step on the gas and at wide open throttle, they sound AWESOME! I think these are the best mufflers for the new mustang. They are throaty and more agressive, but not obnoxious. No annoying drone. They look great, they have 4" rolled chrome tips with the Borla stamp.

P.S.My MAC mufflers are for sale if anyone is interested. $300/including shipping & handling.
