I have them and I really like them, there is a little drone if you are on the throttle going up a hill between about 2300 and 2900 rpm but after about 3000 miles there is less drone after the break in, at highway speeds I don't notice much of any drone. they sound prety deep and you get a little popping between shift (if you drive stick) but it's not like the Roush axle backs pop that sounds tinny it sounds deeper. I think these would sound great with short tube headers but I haven't seen any YouTube videos of them.

I have the Bassani axle b's. I like them but as noted there is a slight drone when going up hills. From what I've read the folks with an automatic are the ones it annoys more but idk. It is an almost exotic sound. Fit/finish were great (scored mine used) I give them thumbs up. Below is a link to my review of them on another forum.

Mustang Bassani Exhaust Clips - YouTube

I put up a video on you tube and tried to attach it above. You will not regret Bassani. The videos I put up were when they were relatively new, but now after 6k miles they are deeper and no rasp. It is no V8, but more of an exotic sound, much better than stock sounding for sure. I love pulling away at WOT and hearing the exhaust note. You will get a lot of questions if your car is a V6 or V8 though so be ready.

It could be my imagination,but I tried stuffing some towels in the spare tire hole and I swear it quieted the drone a little, anyone else tried this?. If you want to get rid of drone all together you can make a helmholtz resonator, I've been thinking about it.

I just ordered the Bassani axlebacks after spending 2 weeks reading message boards and watching hundreds of youtube videos. I considered every major brand on the market. Everyone has their idea of a perfect sound. Different strokes for different folks ya know. The Bassani won out for me. There were some complaints of drone but the overwhelming majority of owners seem very happy with them. I got a nice deal too from Stage 3 Motorsports at $475 Shipped.

Bassani does a nice job of producing a deep throaty tone through their mufflers. I particularly like using their axlebacks on v6 Mustangs for this exact reason. As others have said, I think you'll love the difference over stock for sure!

I also wanted to remind you guys that we do offer Price Matching! If any of our competitors have a lower price that's publicly advertised, we can certainly match it. Just make sure to place your order through our Mustang Experts at the number in my signature. Those guys will hook you up!

Now that's when the real phone begins! Gotta love that combo, too. I don't think there's one out there that will net you larger gains for the dollar.

I bought Pype's Pype Bomb axlebacks from American Muscle for my '13 GT, automatic; and they have a serious Drone problem. I've heard of Helmholtz resonators to cancel out the Drone, but other than formulas and applications for everything But car exhaust, that's all I have been able to find. A call to Pypes didn't result in Any Help. The local muffler shops are just as much in the dark as I am. Can you tell me where these might be bought or instructions to make them? I'd really appreciate it. I like everything about these axlebacks, except that narrow range of significant Drone.

I didn't have much luck finding resonators that you can buy, it seems to be more of a DIY thing. Here is a link to a forum specific to mustangs.

Also Google Helmholtz resonator exhaust for more info

Summit racing sells many resonators. Take to a mufflers shop or do it yourself.

They sell just regular resonators as far as I saw. What I'm talking about is a helmholtz resonator which is different, it's used to remove drone from the exhaust not to get rid of rasp and popping

Thanks for this information. I've only gotten thru a couple of pages, but have the specifics. I jacked up the car this afternoon to check out the current exhaust system compared to when that post was written. I think I came up w/ a way to mount the H resonator tube onto the Axleback (Pype Bomb) I bought, which means I could take off the Axleback and have it welded up at a shop, then reassemble as one unit. That will probably be a Winter project, but I really appreciate your Help. Thanks again.

I got mine installed this past Friday. It has a beautiful deep tone now. I wanted something that was not obnoxiously loud and raspy. Bassani delivered on that. They are nice and deep while driving normally and scream at WOT. I have an auto with 273s. There is some drone at 1700-2000 rpm. Its not terrible, but its there. I'll see if that changes after they are broken in. Overall I'm very pleased. I love the sound at start up. They completely transfored the sound of this V6.

Amazing what a set of axelbacks will do. Congrats on the new purchase!

I just got these and installed them by myself this evening (which was a pain in the *** because I'm 6'2, 235 and I don't have a jack or ramps). However, a few hours later they were on.

My first impression was that they were much quieter at idle than expected. However, from 1000 to 4000 RPM they are much louder than stock, and the entire exhaust note is almost entirely a very deep base. Subwoofer deep. Then, from 4000 to redline they sound almost identical to stock, not much of a noticeable volume or tone difference than the original mufflers that come with the manual transmission cars. Possibly even quieter. They do sound really nice cruising around, but it is definitely strange that they get so quiet above 4000 RPM.

These observations are just from what I hear in the driver's seat, I haven't head them outside of the car yet. I'm sure they sound completely different from behind the car, especially at higher RPMs. I am impressed with how deep these are, and there was no hint of any raspy type noise.

After installing new speakers throughout the interior, I replaced the bassani axlebacks with my stock ones to improve the stereo quality. I'll be listing them for sale soon once I get them cleaned up and get a picture.

so why sell? If ya want to hear music twist the loud knob....if ya want to hear motor push the fast pedal.

To potential buyers the used exhaust price rocks compared to new.

They are so deep that they overcome the bass from the speakers. I recently went on a 3000 mile road trip over the holidays and they were a little louder in the car than I would prefer under 2000 rpm. I have the 2.73s so I'm right around 1800 rpm cruising most of the time.
