RPI GTC or any exhaust without drone

This may sound crazy, but is anyone local within the tri state area who has a full exhaust system and I can listen to it in person? I have the RPI GTA cat back exhaust on my car and im growing tired of the drone, but thinking about going with a full system... I was thinking the GTC, I heard its a lot less drone and a lot quieter then the GTM, but read on this forum that some stated it still has some minor drone. Im looking for options and suggestions... And I would love to hear some in person if possible, i find that the video clips aren't always true to the actual sound... Thanks :-) Mel

I also have uuc corsa rear section but paired with acm test pipes. It doesn't drone at all to me but I know everyone has a different view point of what they consider drone.

Yea your right...agreed. Everyones opinions are going to be a little different and what they can tolerate. I can tolerate my RPI now... I have been for years, it's not even THAT bad, but I have noticed it has affected my hearing inside and even when I am NOT in my car. Lol im like waahhhh???? I did read that the RPI GTC has about 25% less drive and an overall different tone..plus gains... Are you local?

I have the dinan rear with tuner test pipes. Overall not too loud for regular driving. Once you get on it it has a nice deep tone. Not much drone at cruising speeds.
