How much drone, would you say? Is it essentially gone at 2900 and 3100? I'm not generally concerned if it's narrow, and I don't expect to be doing freeway commuting in this car, but still. The MPE has two narrow bands of modest drone around 2300 and 3100, but not so much you can't talk or listen to music.

What kind of x-pipe would you suggest?
