Would a tune or X-pipe reduce the low end drone? Anyone did this and noticed any change?

An x-pipe will undoubtedly make it worse.

As for the power or torque loss, you are imagining it. An axleback alone will not have a noticeable effect on power detectable via but dyno.

I have had ten different exhaust setups in 14 months and I want to try the Eisenmann Race but I can't stand the ugly canisters.

Did you reuse the stock connecting pipes or bought eisenmann's? Wondering if it could make a difference.
The connecting pipes will make no difference. The only difference between the OEM ones and Eisenmann as far as sound and performance are concerned is that the Eisenmann ones are shiny.
