Best Slip Ons for Radio Listening

Currently running Rinehart 4" slip ons and fulsac true dual header on a 2008 Streetglide. I love the sound but tired of the db's during long rides. Plus, I just added an aftermarket radio, two lower speakers and an amp. I'd like to hear them! I've considered the SE Street Cannons but heard they're too loud without stock header. Also thought about CFR slip ons but heard they destroy low end at launch.
I do love the low, throaty sound of them.

Any ideas on what could quiet the beast without making it sound like a stock sewing machine?

Thanks in advance!

Wind noise is louder than any pipes to me. But maybe it's because I don't have a fairing.

I must really he hardcore old skool,,, lol,,, there is no music sweeter to my ears when riding than the sound of my 113 rumbling...

screaming eagle mufflers are pretty quiet,,, and make decent power and torque..
RC isnt bad either,,, and the end caps can be changed..

I have Crusher Mellow Mufflers - 505 on my 2015 Ultra Classic. Nice mellow tone, not too loud. Decent sound when you open it up but still on the tame side. I hear they make pretty decent power too but I haven't had mine tuned or checked on the dyno. I think they are discontinued but you might find some for a good deal on clearance or used.

No 113, but the 103 and the 111 are both music to my ears.

Trade it in for a mini van. I hear they are nice and quite inside.

Or build your stereo up but don’t neuter your road dog

If you are listening to that cRap that most of the big wheel/big radio crowd is listening to, short, straight pipes would be best for the rest of us.

Yeah, I've had my years of deafening pipes and I'm riding an 08 so bigger motor is out for now. Maybe if I trade up.

I went with the V&H Monster Rounds. Nice rumble and noise when I need it but not all the time. I already have the ringing in the ears. Don't want to make it worse.

I have Big Louie 4” slip ones (Rush). They have swappable baffles and using smaller ones definitely quiets them down. I run 2-1/4” baffles in them with S&S power tune dual headers on my 07 Road King. I can hear my radio ok until about 70. If I really wanted to hear it on the highway, I could lower my baffles or crank up the output of my amp. Perhaps you can open the fairing and turn up the output of your amp? It’d be a shame to lose the Rinehart’s...

Well the best radio cans are the ones that came on it from the factory.

As far as have a good deep tone, but not stepping all over the tunes, S&S Mk45's are prolly the way to go.
