I like the sound of the cherry bomb (or any glasspack style muffler) way better then chambered. i've had both on many vehicles, and absolulty hate the resonance/drone at cruise that is in the cab with a chambered (flowmaster) mufflers. glasspacks just sound soo goood. IMO

Dynomax bullet or cherrybomb, not flowmaster. Just switched my flowmaster to a bullet which is similar to a glasspack. No pop or crackle though. Here are some comparison videos.

Ok I've read most of the muffler forums and every post seems to be based on opinions. But I am split between Gibson and magna flow, which one will be more loud and deep sounding anyone who has had both at one point or another? My f150 is a 2010 lariat 5.4L

what every body likes about glasspacks is that they are loud

one thing you can do for a deeper tone is put a 6"-7" tip on your exhaust a big tip will make it deeper and a bit louder as well, I think the gibson are deeper and the magnaflow are louder, you might want to consider a sweet thunder muffler as well, if you go true dual 2 1/4"-2 1/2" exhaust with high flow cats and sweet thunder mufflers it should be loud and deep

flow master, it has good/deep sound. cherry bomb is fun at first but I just got tired of how loud it was after a year or so

Glass packs, cherry bombs and magnaflow need to be changed out. I went with the stainless flowmaster super 44 and that's nice and loud. I never have to change it out or worry about it rotting away. It dose resonate but I like to hear what the motor is doing and if I don't want to hear it I just turn up the stereo.

I would go with Cherrybomb but not their glass pack. The Cherrybomb website has sound files with the sound of each of their mufflers.
