drone

  1. 4.6L Talk
    A couple weeks ago I got some boommat sheets and put them inside my doors. Although the overall sound difference was minimal, I noticed a reduction in overall vibration, which directed my ears towards the remaining vibrations (which is approximately everywhere else). I've ordered another set of...

    Hey, I am finally going to upgrade my stock exhaust, and have chosen the flowmaster outlaw mufflers. What I really want to do is put muffler deletes axlebacks, and have the outlaws welded in up front replacing the stock mufflers. Would that work or would having only 1 muffler per pipe...

    Hello all, I recently upgraded from an 07 V6 to a 14 V6. I got the bassani axlebacks from AM and holy **** do they drone. The drone is from about 1700-3000 rpm. I tried adjusting the ball and socket type joints in the exhaust and moving and tightening the clamps around thinking that maybe I...

    I recently installed new Borla Stingers and I love them (wish they were a little louder but that's why I bought them so I could tune the exhaust note without getting too loud) The installation wasn't too problematic on the driver side, the passenger side had some difficulties though and the...

    I have a 2007 Mustang GT 5-speed that I plan to put Long Tube Headers on; most likely Pypes with an off road X. I had Borla Stingers on my 06 GT automatic, and I loved the sound but hated the drone. My car currently has chambered mufflers that were on it when I bought it, like a flow master that...

    Hey y'all, I was one of the first people to jump the gun on buying the pypes new axlebacks for the v6 and honestly I love the sound. My one of two issues with these is that I had to go to the muffler shop to get stuff bent and aligned because out of the box the set up was horrible, it rested on...

    so installed my competition plus short throw shifter and almost immediately on my drive to work i noticed an increase of noise inside my car while driving. i can hear the engine from the inside differently, it doesn't sound like how it used to, it sounds different for some reason. (also when i...

    Hi All, I have a 2012 5.0 Automatic (no jokes or comments please, I'm lazy and orderd her like that... ha!) and am looking into axle backs for my 'stang. I have been reading many reviews on American Muscle.com about 'the drone' around 2000rpm or at highway speeds... Note: I'm not concerned...

    Howdy everyone! I'm new to the Forum and have a question about an upgrade I just did to my 2012 Mustang GT. So I just had some mods done to the car: Steeda CAI JLT Oil Separator Kooks Long Tune Headers Steeda Exhaust I LOVE the exhaust noise and the power is awesome, but I am getting a...

    My exhaust drones something fierce from 1800 and 2100 RPM, which happens to be at 70 to 80 mph, so it's there all the time on the highway. I have a Flowmaster Hushpower catback. I was thinking that a set of glasspacks, installed in the straight part of the exhaust after the x, would act as a...

    So I have a 10 GT with a pypes offroad x-pipe and im looking for some new exhausts. I had SLP Loudmouths on it before and there was a really bad drone around 3k rpm. It was also a little too loud for in town. So basically what im looking for is an exhaust with no drone and loud but not crazy...

    I'm looking for ways to eliminate exhaust drone! I changed out my axle back and deleted the cats but the sound was to raw and really didn't like it to much until I read about resonators. So I threw in a set of the Dynomax Race Bullet Mufflers http://www.summitracing.com/parts/WLK-24215/...

    I have an 09 GT that I put a Borla Axle-back exhaust on - everything else is stock. Love the throaty growl - exactly what I was looking for. Even makes my husband jealous and he has an 05 GT with cams :). But the inside drone is crazy at 1600-2000 rpms. It's an automatic so I can't even shift...

    Okay, after listening to as many sounds clips as I can (I know they can't totally capture the authentic sound), I'm pretty sure I want MAC axle backs for my 2010 GT manual. The rest of the exhaust will be stock and will likely remain so for years. Of course, my main concern is how bad they...

    I installed my Roush Axle Backs this past week and it sounds incredible. However as others have attested to, there is significant drone under 2000 RPM. That combined with highway driving and a 6 year old are threatening the longevity of the exhaust on my '11 V6. I started looking into different...
  16. 2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    Well the Magnapacs ended up being too much for highway cruising and I switched to GT takeoffs. I want a louder exhaust and am considering the SSS Adrenaline axle back. It seem very similar to Borla stingers which sound very good on the V6s, and in the description SSS claims it doesn't drone. I...

    I have american thunder flowmasters with Mac o/r h and JBA shorty's. The drone is pretty bad. Car sounds awesome but think I might want to change it. I was thinking maybe between Bassani and Super 40's. Whats the interior noise difference between these two? HP gains? and all that good...
  18. 2005-2010 Mustang Talk
    Picked up my new and very first Mustang today, very happy! It's a 2005 convertible. I would like a deeper exhaust note but have been reading about this dreaded drone that you can get from after market exhausts. Could anyone please recommend an exhaust that wouldn't produce drone at highway...
