There are some of us who experience drone around 2K rpm with the SPD trombone, I'd like to run this poll to see if we can determine if it's a year/mileage thing...
When I reached out to SPD they said my 2017 with 54k miles may have blown out the OEM muffler packing so it may drone - let's see if the data matches the comment...

I absolutely LOVE how this midpipe makes the truck 'sing' at higher RPMs, ala Nissan GTR revs... but the 2k drone is tough... vote away!!

My biggest complaint is that my truck doesn't sound like the GT SPD uses in their comparison video. They also stated it was because my muffler is blown but as mentioned in the other thread I highly doubt it. I did find out the truck they were using had over axle dumps. I reached out to the owner of the truck to see how he did the axle dumps but it appears he hasn't been active on social media for some time.

Interesting, I’m still following this product as I don’t want drone either. I actually want better sound at part to mid throttle as that’s where the vast majority of my time is spent. And of course I’m also a fan of the GTR sound whether people think it belongs in a truck or not.

really curious if there are differences in the midpipe/length between 2017 to 2020 years... a few inches could make a difference in sound
