Default Best sounding mufflers with offroad x pipe?

I'm looking to get some axle back exhaust, and an offroad x shortly after as well. I'm trying to get some opinions on the best sounding offroad x and muffler combo, without trumpeting, or tin can crackling sound! If you have a good exhaust video post it up as well! I've heard frpp stingers with an x and it sounded like it trumpeted pretty bad, but I've heard chambered mufflers and an offroad midpipe can sound bad/ drone horribly. opinions? thanks!

I can't do o/r pipes, so I'm opting to go with the Borla Atak axle-backs. However, even on the GT I think they do have a tin can sound.

off road will always trumpet, even worse with headers. I have Bassanis and there was zero trumpeting with high flow cats on the x-pipe I had. That combo sounded awesome, so many compliments. Just a heads up, very few Utah shops will work on any part of your exhaust if you remove the factory cats so be ready to do it yourself. Premier down in SLC can help since they aren't an inspection station.

Hmm maybe I should go for a catted x then. Did you notice any gains that were worth it?
