2 vs 4 resonators?

I had the Dinan mids (quad resonated) and Dinan rear on my last E92 and it sounded great, no drone.

All other things being equal, if I go with 2 resonators only, does this "in theory" increase rasp only or drone as well?

Any other input would help...

Most of the systems I have seen that run 4 have less drone and rasp than systems running 2.

Rasp doesn't bother me too much. On the other hand, drone drives me bonkers!

drone is controlled by the mufflers really. Resonators reduce rasp.

ok, thanks...

I am just looking for more options for midpipes other than dinan. Gintani has quads as well but are at the same price point. I may end up trying 2 resonators...

I really enjoyed that sharp tone I got from the Dinan...

I had a local shop build mine here in Miami. Started with a 2 resonator setup and wound up adding 2 more. Aero Turbines, nice resonators. 4 removed most all of the rasp. It all depends on what muffler is run. I was running a Hartge rear section which has a little rasp to begin with so it needed 4 to really back it down.

If I were to do it all again, I would buy the cheapest catless/non resonated mid-section with good fitment and logical bends.

I'd install 2 Vibrant 1792's in front of the X section and 2 Vibrant 1792's behind the X Section.

Party.
