my EM1 sounds like ****. it sounds like a FART CANNON. WTF! i hate that noise..i was trying to avoid that noise. wth! so if i get a big *** resonator itll be quiet?

Not necessarily, but possibly.

A resonator, well, it resonates. It reflects sound waves back. Within a given frequency range, this creates destructive interference, canceling out sound.

So, if you want to get rid of the "fart cannon" sound, you'll need to add a resonator that will cancel out the frequency that your exhaust is generating that you dislike, place it at the correct location in the exhaust path (it matters a lot where it is) to allow it to do so, and go from there.

However, if your muffler is lacking the ability to muffle much sound (whether in total or within a frequency range), adding the resonator won't change the volume (much, if at all), just what frequencies make it back there.

One of my cars makes use of a 4-1 header, 3" collector (oversized, acts as an echo chamber and drops tone), high flow cat (minor muffling there), glasspack (only muffles high frequency), 1-2 split around diff to 1.5" pipes, glasspacks, and "resonator" tips. Its super loud, rumbles like a large V8, and really confuses people when they see the 1.5L 4 banger under the hood.

Its all about picking components that work together in an exhaust to produce the sound and flow you want. You can't just slap something else in and

expect it to just magically work with everything else. The whole system needs to be designed together with parts that compliment each other for a given goal.

Where should i have them put the resonator?

i have a 4-1 header and straight pipe right now with flowmaster muffler. 2.25"

i should've left my car stock. Lol wasted 260 and another 65 dollars. could've got my window tinted.
