Default Aftermarket exhaust drone?

Any opinions on the drone of any of the available catbacks for the 6.4?

My history - I put an MBRP catback on my '09 5.7L, and absolutely could not stand the drone. The noise was unbearable around 1600 RPM, but was also bad at almost all RPM's on the highway. That system only lasted about two months before I dumped it for a Corsa catback - that was AWESOME and had no drone at all. I basically wasted about $600 on the MBRP, but it was worth it to get rid of the thing.

Now, my 6.4 is my daily driver, and I've been looking at the available systems - there is no way I'm buying another MBRP, but what about the drone on the Flowmaster, or any others available?

Maybe I'm especially sensitive to the drone, I don't know. But I would much rather stick with the restrictive stock system than have a nice performance system with a bunch of drone.

I still want a Corsa, but when I emailed them, they said that they MIGHT have a system in mid-2016. Who knows...

Thanks.

Magnaflow cat back on mine and a fair amount of drone @ 1600 rpm.
No resonator with the system.

Magnaflow 19200 kit does have a resonator along with their largest 3.5" I/O muffler. It has a mild amount of drone under any load on the highway but it's certainly not overbearing. I consider drone to be anything you can hear from the exhaust while cruising. FYI, I also have ARH full length headers and believe the system is quieter with the stock manifolds (I did the headers first).

Good luck!

Thanks for the candid info, guys.

From my past experiences, I am adverse to pretty much any drone. So, at this point, I will stick with stock until one of the high-end companies like Corsa or Borla decide to work with the 6.4L (if they ever do at all).
