Default Exhaust, how to get a raspy tone without droning?

Hi all, as the title suggests really, running a 99 volvo v40 2.0i, and I appear to be doing the opposite of what most people do, in that I actually *want* as much rasp as I can get.

All it has at the moment is the standard cat, centre box removed for a straight pipe and a universal stainless rear box, which sounds OK but not very raspy.

I then swapped the rear box for a small glass pack cherry bomb type thing which gave me loads of rasp, just what I want, but unfortunately it also gave me the most horrible drone I have ever heard, it's not too bad on idle, but attempting to drive it, anywhere between about the 1500 and 3000 rpm is horribly, quite literally deafening in the car.

This is what it's like with the little glass pack box, although I've since swapped it back over with the larger stainless one because I could see my getting pulled over in no time with it like that.

So yeah, does anybody know of a way that I could get the rasp I'd like but without the horrible droning.

Thanks in advance

I dont think you can get raspy sound without the loud drone. Some sound deadening may help block the loud exhaust sound from entering the cabin...

I have managed to eliminate the problem, me being an absolute doofus failed to see the significance of the tail pipe not clearing the rear of the car, all of the drone was nothing more than reverb, I have temporarily tack welded a piece of pipe onto the outlet so it clears until my proper tail trim arrives.
