whats the difference between resonated and unresonated? which would sound better
asked by: Mattt
A resonator exhaust tip can be considered as a cavity resonator in which the design causes the air to vibrate a certain way in a hollow cavity which produces a certain sound. They can be used in some systems to work with the muffler to reduce noise. But at the tip, a resonator exhaust tip will produce more noise versus a regular exhaust tip.
That loud, high frequency, reverberation sound you hear on import tuner cars is resonator exhaust. If that is the sound you are looking for, then a resonator tip is the way to go. If you want less attention from passersby, go with a regular tip.
