5500 is on a distinguished road

I'd start buy removing the resonators ahead of the tailpipes. Easily handled by any muffler shop for short money. This may give you the sound you want without having to change muifflers.
When I swapped out the stock muffler for an 18" Magnaflow I was very dissappointed with sound quality (barely audible difference from stock unless WOT > 3000rpm). Once the resonators were removed I was quite satisfied and regretted not removing them to begin with. Different reports on drone without resonators but compared to other vehicles I've owned, I don't notice any droning in my RCSB hemi.
I've always been happy with Magnaflow; good quality, reasonable price, deep mellow sound vs. gnarly/angry sound from Flows. Much easier to live with on a DD.
Good Luck!
