Default Best Axle Back for Rest of Setup?

I'm currently leaning towards the Mac LT Headers, and the Mac O/R Prochamber H Pipe. Any suggestions on which Axle Back to get? I want a really aggressive, deep tone, but I also want the setup to be pretty loud. Of course, not too obnoxiously and unnecessarily loud because I don't want to piss off the neighbors. Any input would be greatly appreciated.

I second the Mac mufflers, but just understand that with your setup, they'll be really loud. I had the chambered Macs with the rest of the exhaust stock, and they were too loud for me.

I've done more research, and of course the YouTube videos do not do an exhaust sound justice, but the Bassani Race A/B's had a very good tone. I know that the full Mac setup would be extremely loud, but how much do you think the Bassani's will lower the volume? That's my only concern considering that the Bassani's exhaust note is awesome. I guess the question really is, which AB with mufflers will be best with the setup, because I do think the muffler deletes will be too loud.

I put on the Bassani axle backs and really like them. Great low rumble and WOT is sweet sounding.

Bassani street is what I originally put on the car and they are awesome. I ran the MAC Boom Tubes for quite a while and I enjoyed them, but for the neighborhood, I put the Bassanis back on. For sound, I am a huge fan of the Bassani street axle backs with what you're describing.

Keep in mind that you are looking at a Prochamber, and Prochambers are notorious (from what I've read) for making the sound quieter, so it might offset the lack of cats. If you want a deep tone, most axle-backs are trying to offer a "deep tone" so it's all a bit subjective.

My personal recommendation is the Ford Racing FR500S mufflers. They are a bit pricier, but the sound is awesome. I've had the guys in the repair shop all compliment the sound-and I've done nothing else with the exhaust. I prefer them over the Flowmaster, and I had those on my '05 GT. I like the stock exhaust with the Ford Racing mufflers better than my Flowmasters with JBA LT headers and JBA H-midpipe with high-flow cats.

I have the bassani race mufflers and I love them. They sound great with long tube headers.
