Resonated vs non resonated tips

Hey guys, I am planning on doing a custom exhaust setup. I have finalized flowtech afterburners for my mufflers, they have zero drone and sound pretty good -as per reviews. However, they're slightly on the louder side. How much? Thats purely subjective, they make 86 dbs at idle, 94 at 2000 rpm, and 115 at WOT. Compared to magnaflows 82, 91, and 114 dbs. Granted these tests were done on an old school V8, and they don't necessarily replicate amount of decibels produced from a v6 engine.

Now here's what I'm wondering: would resonated tips help just in case they turn out to be slightly louder than what I'm expecting? I know these wouldn't serve the purpose of glasspacks, but still. I'm gonna buy a set of new tips anyway, might as well get the resonated ones if they're of any help. Im still on stock manifolds/midpipe/resonators.

Thanks in advance!

My opinion is::::::::

I think the resonated tips will make the sound a little deeper without disturbing performance. A deeper tone means less drone.

Sounds good. I'm guessing they will also take care (well sort of) of rasp/popcorn sound, if any?

They might somewhat lessen the volume, but I can't imagine it would be by much. The Borla "intercooled" tips I saw on Jegs were an interesting concept on resonated tips. Some people in those reviews swear by them and some say it's a gimmick.
