sports exhaust resonators

can anyone help me

Am fitting a 2.5 inch sports exhaust on my car (currently 2 inch). I want a nice note for the car, but do not want it to drone when on the highway or cruising. Would a resonator help? What exactly are resonators? Would a resonator be worthwhile? How much are they?

As one way of reducing drone, i am not going to put a cheap exhaust put on

Any help would be really good! thanks in advance

Resonators are critical to stop droning and since they are essentially straight through, they don't restrict flow by very much at all.

As with most exhaust things, the VOLUME of the resonator will determine its effect on droning.
