Spintech mufflers

Has anyone installed a pair of Spintech 1ABM6111-38 Sportsman Street 3000 axle back mufflers on there 2011+ 5.0? I'm looking to buy a pair of stainless mufflers that sound more throatier than stock but aren't too harsh, loud, or raspy and these caught my eye. I want a more aggressive sound but don't want to be overly annoying decibel wise. They list them as "aggressive".
Spintech also makes a Super Pro Street 9000 but they list them as "very aggressive".
I know Spintech are pricey but I've always heard good things. Any input?

This ^

I put on some GT500's recently and have been pleased with the way it sounds. Quiet when cruising at less than 2000 rpm, gets loud when you step on it. Can't beat them for the price.

Plus they will get deeper with age.

Spintech!? Are those guys still around? I remember looking at those a long time ago and laughing at their 'corkscrew in a can' technology.

I don't speak often but when I do, I don't have clue what I am talking about. I just repeat things that I once heard and do not repeat them correctly... My doctor told me it was an ID 10 T problem and it was incurable.
So when I reply to a post or add to a thread I just find the words elsewhere and copy and paste.

Damn! At that price, you're competing with the Borla S-type.

And as much as I loved the spintechs on a buddy's big block Chevy, I have yet to hear an axleback exhaust on a Coyote which sounds as good as my Borlas do, and doesn't drone.

A couple of you mentioned the GT500 mufflers. Do they have any noticeable drone? I saw Ford Racing sells the GT500 mufflers and they were pretty affordable.
Is the Borla S-type a very loud muffler? I'm not looking for one that's very loud.
The Spintech mufflers aren't cheap but they are supposedly high quality. They are not common and that fact alone appeals to me if they sound good and don't drone.

No drone at all on the GT500 mufflers, and if you want them a little louder, replace/remove the over-axle resonators. You won't be disappointed with the GT500's, they really do sound fantastic. They just aren't loud enough for some folks on here! The tips look fantastic too. Stainless single wall 4" tips.

I run the Borla S-types. Yes, they are loud. Heads turn when you crank the car up in a supermarket parking lot.

They are what our cars should have come with stock.
As said you wont be disappointed with the 500s. Absollutly no drone at all. At cruising rpms inside the cabin they are no louder than stock.
