Smile Best Sounding Exhaust

Hey Guys I had a question and would like some opinions. What would be the best exhaust for my Ram 1500 5.7 Hemi. This might be my first mod and i would like to go for the best. I see a lot of Ram truck go for the Magnaflow but I would like to see what everyone else things?

It all depends on the sound you want. Do you want to go loud, or a nice aggressive sound. Preferably with me, I want to scare children and wake up the elderly because I am 22 and a a-hole I just love loud exhaust. A Magnaflow exhaust with just a muffler swap, won't be as loud but will offer a nice aggressive sound. A flowmaster will be much louder. I am running a Super 44 with the resonator removed, and my truck is pretty loud. May swap out to a Super 10 which is sopose to be extremely loud.
Here are the vids of mine truck, the first is a cold start up from the winter (click on picture to play it).

Sound is very subjective, but I highly recommend the MagnaFlow cat-backs. Deep throaty tone without the drone.

I went straight for it and just got rid of the muffler all together. Just straight piped it.

You'll get A LOT of different answers, Magnaflow seems to be the most popular on this forum. I tried it, wasn't for me was way too 'meh / dull' for me. After lots of youtube listening my favorites are: Flowmaster 44/44/50HD and Cherry bomb Extreme.

I have a Mufflex 24 (Magnaflow muffler) on mine. It doesn't drone and it's just loud enough for me. I've had louder systems on other trucks, but I always got tired of the noise eventually. But to each their own, any exhaust mod is an improvement over stock

magnaflow makes 2 mufflers now
18 inch is throaty,no drone in the cabin
14 inch has a throaty,louder more aggressive tone,and also no drone in the cabin
both these mufflers are made out of stainless steel,and they're the same price

I went with the one the KIDS did not like for being( not loud enough), BORLA-it sounds perfect even after all this time-09-..the drone on the highway is barely there, when it shifts into last gear ,you can still hear the radio or people talking...all stainless, and mine was 89.00. It has a really deep sound that a lot of people ask me what type it is, it is nice and loud when you hit it on the highway, also I pull a 34 foot TT, and with the pipes pointing at a large flat wall the whole time we are on the road, you dont want a loud muffler.

I had borla's on my ford cobra,they were awesome,but where I live here in florida I would have had to order them,but my magnaflow is quiet as I went with their 18 inch mufflers,and they are quiet.
just a slight rumble upon takeoff and it quiet's down,and I have the 5.9 litre V8.
