Default Best sounding exhaust?

What is your opinion of the best sounding 2 into 2 softail exhaust? I like a deep rumble sound and don't care much for the air crackle sound.

Only one thing sounds better than a 2-1 Thunderheader, that is true duals w/thunderheader's slip ons Of course regarding performance the 2-1 persť beats the chit out of the 2-2.

Jesus saves lives, loud pipes just sound awesome.

Fear hypocrites and zombies, but only when you're not packing heat.

I like the ones that came on my bike, RINEHART race tuned true duals. They sound good and not to over whelming, good still wakes up the neighborhood!

I am an expert at this. I've listened long and hard to every exhaust out there and have concluded that my Vance & Hines True Duals with quiet baffles produce the best exhaust note there is.

Might as well close this thread as this is the only correct answer

I think the best low rumble comes from Rinehearts, but may change my mind as I have a set of thunder baffles going in mine, keep you posted

My Rinehart slipons have an awesome deep throaty growl and less expensive than full systems.

Default Thunder baffles

My thought was the Rineharts produce the best low rumble but the Big City Thunder seems to be a way to get a similar sound out of any style pipe. Very interested to hear your opinion of your BCT when installed in the short shots.
