Resonator question?

So I put a magnaflow straight through muffler on the car but you can really not even notice a difference. So if I just remove one of the resonators will it make a noticeable difference? Or do you have to remove them both. I don't want it real loud but I'd at least like to hear it with the windows down.

If you remove one resonator it will make a difference. The amount of difference is really a preference. I say you remove one resonator and see how you like it.

Yeah probably what I will do. I mean it's a 4 door sedan I don't want it loud just noticeable. I don't want it any louder than say a stock 350z to give ya an idea

same idea as the aa exhaust (muffler in essence) i got. wasn't loud enough, so i removed the back resonator & now it sounds perfect to me. I can hear it well with the windows down, but just barely with the windows up.
