It is definitely louder on startup and when getting on it. Tone is a little deeper but I'm sure not as much as if it were longer 5" tips, IMO.
I'm no expert by any means on this stuff but maybe since the stock pipes are long 2.5" tube (I think) to where the tips are welded on and the BSM tips gradually go to 5" tips, might have something to do with it?
I know exhaust questions like this are personal opinions and probably all answers will be different from others. I know from what I have done to my truck, the difference in sounds and tones. I added the mopar intake first and noticed the sound difference (obvious there). Then I added the 14" magnaflow muffler and again noticed the sound difference. Lastly added the BSM 5" tips and noticed a difference in the sound. Tone is a little deeper and is louder, I have neighbors 3-4 houses down from me and they say they know when I'm leaving cause they here my truck startup (they are inside).
Overall I am pleased with how my truck sounds... Louder and a little deeper tone and a lot better sounding than most other trucks around me that have spent big time $$$$ on there setup. Even my supervisor, a Ford guy and definitely not RAM, said my RAM sounds 100x better than his sons 2013 F150 with dual exhaust ($$$$).
Here is a before and after pic of the tips...
