It usually sounds different because of the exhaust echoing off of walls and such, it's deeper when it's not bouncing off Walls but if u go somewhere with Walls u can hear that rasp since the sound is coming back at you

Technically the sound could be a little different. Anytime you change the air flow to your combustion chamber, there will be a change to your exhaust tone. Your current exhaust tone is built from the vibrations or frequencies of the combustion process. Any change in this process can potentially change to different frequencies.

Based on what your saying it should be a higher tone? Considering having a cleaner filter would allow more air in?

Not necessarily... With particles blocking the flow of air, it can increase the loudness output. With a clean new air filter, it will be more smooth with no particles blocking the flow of air.

Example: If you blow air through a clean pipe, it sounds smooth and constant. If you blow air through a pipe with particles or other elements, the air flow will bounce off them thus changing the sound that exits the pipe.

A cleaner air filter just means the air is passing more efficiently which would cause your exhaust to sound slightly lower in tone.
