Hope you have a high-speed connection. Reccomend you right click and save on the videos. Subwoofer needed to accurately hear exhausts. Enjoy the sweet sounds...

Svenske 2 resonator system sounds VERY similar to original louder Evolve system :

Re: Biggest Exhaust Sound Clip Thread Ever - Stock, SvR 2 & 3 Res, SvR Lite, ... ("R" Kelly)

And some general observations:

Stock exhaust is too quiet, restrictive and heavy.

Svenske 2 res and Evolve exhausts sound awesome, but are TOO LOUD. As stated many times, the worse thing is the off throttle resonance between 2-3K rpms. While I loved the sound, hated the resonance, and was forced to either push clutch in or keep a slight bit of gas going to avoid the mind numbing vibration inside the car as the entire trunk turns into a boom box. Cold starts are also very loud, just ask my neighbors.

Adding a third resonator to Svenske did help with the sound, made it 2-3 decibels quieter inside the car, really improved cold start volume (neighbors noticed difference without me saying anything). However, third resonator did not do much to help off throttle resonance, still annoying, especially if you have passengers in the car.

Adding Fatmat/Dynamat to truck of the car REALLY helps cut down on the resonance, and decreases the noise inside the car 3-4 decibels. Alynthir's original Evolve with trunk lining sounded great still and is very livable. I highly reccomend anyone with an original Evolve exhaust or to do this mod. As stated many places, Dynamat is pricey, Fatmat is 1/7th the cost. Other people have used other things. Also a good idea if you ever want to add a subwoofer.

If you have a Svenske, I highly reccomend you swap the rear resonator for a magnaflow muffler, #14219. Costs less than $85 (it lists for $155, but every on-line dealer was under $85) and only cost me $50 to install.

http://www.magnaflow.com/02pro...d=601

I also bought some black grill paint and gave it to muffler guy, so it isn't even noticeable now installed. If you have a Svenske and your tip doesn't stick out enough, the offset on Magnaflow #14229 will help with this, although a little trickier install.

I AM SO HAPPY NOW with my exhaust. Don't know if you can tell from videos, but there is NO MORE OFF-THROTTLE RESONANCE. Sound is very mature, sporty, exotic, but it still comes alive under WOT. Magnaflow is a straight through 3", so no restriction whatsoever, just sound deadening material to absorb the vibration as it passes through. I don't know if I'll even bother to sound Fatmat the trunk now (I doubt Richard is ever going to mail it to me at this point), I do have my dynaliner foam under my rubber lining, so that is probably helping some. Oh, by the way, adding the Magnaflow dropped the noise inside 6-10 db.

NOTE: All of these posts are sort of useless if you don't have a subwoofer on your PC. I'm running a Klipsch 4.1 system (400 watt total, 160 watt sub), and they are very realistic. However, on my laptop, they sound like crap and are not indicative of true sound.

Re: Biggest Exhaust Sound Clip Thread Ever - Stock, SvR 2 & 3 Res, SvR Lite, ... ("R" Kelly)

Kelly,

Where is the Ferrita clips you listed in the thread title????

Maybe you can record some tomorrow http://********************/smile/emthup.gif http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

We have two different setups that will be at the ring tomorrow!!

--Mine and Bryan's are with the Ferrita 3" downpipe and one rear muffler, with 2-3" outlets. we cut out the original middle resonator and replaced it with a straight 3" to 2-2 1/4" pipe, custom made to our specs by "Burns Stainless". Sounds very throaty, but not too loud.

--Shawn will be there tomorrow and basically has the same setup as Johann had on his V70R. All original Ferrita 3" downpipe, middle resonator, and rear muffler, 2-3" outlets.

Bryan and I did not like the 3" to 2-2 1/4" transition and welds and felt it was a major restriction. We were right. Plus the sound (of the original Ferrita setup) had become too quiet, close to sounding like stock. We wanted something that sounded a little more aggressive, but not too loud on the inside. We hit the nail on the head. http://********************/smile/emthup.gif

Quick note, this is a dead link...
http://ss.otheron.com/rkelly/videoMagExhWOT.MOV
should be...
http://ss.otheron.com/rkelly/video/MagExhWOT.MOV (missed a /)

OK, for the real stuff... I recently got a used, but new and improved Evolve exhaust with the larger, quieter center resonator. So far I'm very happy with it and think it sounds great! When I'm alone in the car I wish it was louder, probably more like the original Evolve or Svenske 2-res setup, but when I have others in the car I remember why I like the quieter version so much! http://********************/smile/emthup.gif Like others have said, whether for the new Evolve exhaust or the "SvenskeLite" exhasut, it still sounds great under WOT, but is MUCH more liveable for day-to-day driving. Cold starts a still loud though IMO, but I only leave my house super early once a week, hey, someone's got to remind the neighbors when it's trash day right?!?

So, you're missing this modified Evolve clip, but my only method of recording would be on a Canon Digital Elph camera (with video function). Is this similar to what you used? Do these little d-cams create accurate audio/video? Do you think it would allow a fair comparison?

Re: Biggest Exhaust Sound Clip Thread Ever - Stock, SvR 2 & 3 Res, SvR Lite, ... (AaronSoto)

Aaron-

Tks for the catch, I updated link above.

All of my video clips come from my Kodak DX7590 digital camera. Shoots 640x480 video with accurate sound. Feel free to post you new Evolve clip with your digicam. If you don't have a place to host the video, e-mail it me.

Goes for everyone, if you have a good audio/video clip of a particular exhaust, feel free to post link. Looking for anyone with BSR, looking for stock with center resonator cut out (JRL, anyone else who did this?).

I'll see what I can do... I guess the d-cams do alright then because I would have never guessed a d-cam picked up such accurate sound. I have a digital SLR with no video so I really didn't know what they were capable of. But my uncle has a Canon SD200 with video so I'll try to see what we can capture next time I go visit him...

Excellent work overall Kelly, as always!

NOT all d-cams do well with video/sound, DX7590 came out last year and is the best I've seen. One of the few advantages non-SLR d-cams have. Tks btw.

awesome videos!!! I watched the one of Alynthir against those V70Rs..... there's no mistaking which sound is the EVOLVE system.

I have the original EVOLVE exhaust on mine, and whil it is a bit loud, it is the sweetest sound at WOT.

I'm going to have a chance to listen to the "newer" EVOLVE exhaust setup in person...after hearing that I'll decide whether I'm getting the new resonator or just dynamat my trunk...

i'm leaning toward just dynamatting my trunk. My exhaust sounds too cool to mes with. On a nice cool day, with the windows down, under hard acceleration - it sounds GREAT....man does it turn heads too.


GREAT POST!!

Re: (23109VC)

Cool, I'll send you my United Frequent Flyer number so I get credit on the ticket you are going to buy me to fly out So Cal so I can record an example at Evolve. I'm from Fresno, so I'll visit the family. Look forward to meeting you.


(or you could go record an example and post, but I prefer the first option)

Yes, Jesse and Bryan removed the mid resonator and replaced it with a straight piece of 3" and a better flowing Y-split.
