Deeper exhaust with no drone possible??

I have the Borla S-Type axle back right now but I'm wanting a deeper exhaust note. I've heard several clips of our v6s that sound nice and beefy but most people with those setups say they have some drone, and I'm really not about that... Soo does anybody have an exhaust setup that sounds deeper than my S-Types without drone?

I'm sure you could have your cake and eat it too with some electric valves to really adjust the sound waves. much like a cutout. Dont know of anyone who's cared enough to go that route.

Drone is resonating of the car's body by the exhaust, so you can combat it with adding a lot of dynomat to the trunk area and rear body of the cabin under the rear seats and such. However, that will add a lot of weight. That's an alternative to a more scientific solution that would be needed for tuning the exhaust to shift the sounds so no resonating occurs.

MBRP catback or Magnaflow. Both have a deep sound.
