Default Magnaflow sound?

Was hoping there was a fellow member or two who would post up a sound clip of their Maganaflow muffler. Just contemplating a simple muffler swap no cat back or single to dual, just a plain old drop in upgrade. I'd like to compare the 18" vs 14" so if you have a clip of one or the other could you please post em here? Thank you.

Thx guys I really appreciate the clips. I know that the videos sound a lil different than in person, but to my ear it seems the 18" has a bigger/deeper tone, which I like. I'm not looking for which is louder as I have another car I drive when i want it loud. But bigger & deeper sound I do want. Has anyone who runs the 18" have an opinion on that or is it just variance from the recording device?

I just had a Magnaflow catback installed today and I have to say the sound is unreal, I love it, I find myself a little heavier on the throttle just to hear it growl! Its a single to dual side exit infront of the passenger side rear tire.

I have the 18" oval single in/dual out unit. Yes, the longer the case the deeper the tone and the quieter the muffler will be. The 18" sounds good to me and that's what I went with.
