Default Magnaflow DI/DO input please

Hello all, I am a newbie who recently stepped up from a 2001 QC Dak to a 2010 Ram Crew. I sure love the truck and am looking to do a few upgrades. I have a Diablo Intune coming and I want to do some simple exhaust upgrades.

I am curious how much difference in sound there is between using a Magnaflow dual-in / dual-out 14" vs an 18"?

I was going to go with DI/DO as it would it seem to be more economical and have better flow.

I know most reviews indicate to go with a 14" over an 18" muffler but I did not know how much difference I would be inducing by eliminating the y-pipe all together. Somewhere, I read that eliminating the y-pipe reduces the sound.

I don't want to get it real loud, just a nice low rumble at idle, not too loud at cruising, and then get a nice rumble again at WOT.

I've tried to listen to videos from examples online but it is hard for me to discern with the different conditions and equipment used to take the vids.

Also, is there any difference other than polished vs satin on the 12XXX series and the 14XXX series of the Maggys?

Thanks for your replies.
