Default There has to be something wrong with my exhaust...

There's no way that any normal car enthusiast can enjoy the noise I'm hearing inside the car at around 1800-2000 RPMs. I literally cannot hear my passenger speak. I love the sound of this exhaust system on the outside...but for god sakes I cannot hear anything from the inside except a contant LOUD humming noise. If you ever sat next tothe engine in a commercial jet...that's exactly how loud these bastards are.

Does anyone have the MACs? Is this how your system sounds like? I've had them for 2 days and have not gotten used to it. This really upsets me. In some instances everything inside of the cabin will rattle....even something in the trunk or the muffler itself. Could it be the muffler is broken and that's what's causing it to be EXTREMELY loud in the car. Please advise...[&o]

Will resonators help....[&o]

Welcome to what is called Dronning noise. From all the threads I've read the Bassani have the least drone. Some say a X or H pipe with high flow cats or no cats helps. I have Borla's and it did get better with time. I too love the sound outside or when your on it. Nothing better !

Some like drone - the sound you are probably hearing - and some don't. There are options for everyone. Sounds like you don't like it. Make sure they are insatalled correctly - HOWARD STERN

I am leaning towards the FRPP GTAs. I think they are Borlas Baba Booey

and do not have a lot of drone. Listen to lot's of sound clips too-it's very personal and there is no right or wrong - one man's poison is another man's good stuff.... Good Luck

Think that goes for the Corsas - NO drone whatsoever

That is true. Corsa's have patents on anti-drone design.

My exhaust is completely stock except for the Cat-back pipes and MAC axlebacks.

Corsa's might have ZERO drone but they are not aggressive and muscle-car like (from what people have mentioned).
