Unfortunately, trying to replicate 100-126 dBs might cause most speaker cones to hemorrhage, and most will avoid equipment and/or ear damage and not understand the exhaust note as recorded.

For more accurate referencing, suggest reproducing using a proper sound system with one of several free/low cost dB/SPL meter apps. Then, one can more accurately quantify the perceived loudness of an exhaust system instead of relying on terms such as, “loud”, “sporty”, “racy”, “aggressive”, “knarly” and “*****in”.

Some may have to demo to the spouse for ultimate approval 😬

All this post needs is an attachment big enough to break the internet and it woood be awesome !!
