Exhaust note loud to quiet?

Took the car for a drive today and could tell that the exhaust note wasn't as loud compared to last time I drove it. I have a American Thunder muffler. Also, when I rev, it starts popping. Never did this until now. When I start to get on it there is little to no drone. I used to have a bit of drone and now there is nothing. I don't understand how the exhaust note can change all of a sudden. Has anyone else experienced this? Any thoughts on how to fix it?

Well it only made popping noises till I broke it in. I've had it for a little but over a year So I don't think it would have taken that long to break it in =\

Happened to me..get underneath, one of my clamps came loose, causing a pretty bad leak..I fixed it myself but I couldn't get it aligned correctly for the life of me, brought it to a meineke and they charge me 30$ go change the clamp, tighten everything, and re align it..noticed the difference as soon as I pulled out of there
