Trying to decide on muffler
 
Ok, I know it's pretty cliche that my first post is an exhaust question, so my apologies in advance.

That being said, I want to to a single in/dual out muffler and retain the resonators. This is the third hemi I've owned (previously 07 jeep gc limited and 09 challenger r/t, now 09 ram r/t) and learned from past experience that removing resonators and getting too aggressive of a muffler leads to terrible sound from mds, which I plan on leaving in tact. My jeep I ran a 14x4" round magnaflow glass pack with a side exit, no resonator setup and it sounded great until mds kicked in and was unbearable. , the challenger I had the same round magnaflow, true duals, no resonators and it wasn't NEARLY as loud as the jeep, mainly because of the rear exit pipes. I'm a little burned out on the magnaflow sound, and miss the flowmaster sound from my mustang days, Im on the fence between super 44s or 10 series/cherry bomb extreme. My concern is the super 44 not being loud enough, and the 10 series being too loud with mds. I know I sound almost as indecisive as a woman in a shoe store, but would like to get this right the first time. Any opinions?

I wish i could watch the vid GT posted, my work computers have stupid firewalls that block just about every vid host site.
A lot of guys with the Flowmasters complain of drone issues worse than the maggy's. I love the Flows sound but they always get anoying on long drives imo. Just go with the 22" Maggy, it should keep the drone down. But if you are tired of the sound, I get it. You could give the Dynomax V/T a shot. I thinks thats what it's called. They have a sring loaded valve to eliminate drone under normal driving conditions. The Valve only opens when you nail the throttle.

The normal engine drone doesn't bother me, the only thing I'm worried about is the mds sounding like a helicopter.

Sounds good. Do you still have resonators?

The MDS drone can get quite annoying, at certain speeds/rpm combos my cab starts to resonate/rattle. I'd bet money a flowmaster would be worse than a magnaflow. There is only one muffler on the market right now that claims no drone due to an internal spring loaded buttterfly valve.
