2012 V6 LFX Resonator delete

Ok, so I know there are a lot of posts about resonator deletes.
I didn't exactly find the answer I'm looking for with my exact set up.
Currently, I have the SLP Loudmouth 2 axle back.
On Thursday, I'm getting the stock H pipe removed and getting the Magnaflow resonated x pipe put on. I know since it is a V6, it'll never sound as an SS, but would a resonator delete make it deeper with the resonated x pipe? I'm trying to stay away from the rasp and "rice" sound. I want it to be as throaty and aggressive as possible. Any suggestions?

If your trying to stay away from rasp don't do an xpipe go with an h pipe and I currently have a full straight pipe on mine. I have rasp at high rpm but a nice set of tips will eliminate that

Well,
From what I've read online, the resonated x pipe will eliminate almost all the rasp?

I'm doing a resonated x pipe, not a straight through x pipe

I think ill just do it, and save the stock resonators. If I don't like them removed, I'll put them back on. I'll post videos

So I just got the resonators deleted and got the magnaflow resonated x put on. Definitely toned down quite a bit (hopefully get a little louder after it breaks in) but I haven't really heard any rasp which is good. Next, I wanna take my SLP LM2 axle back off (they are clamped on) and test how it sounds with a muffler delete. Maybe it'll get louder without any rasp. If you wanna get rid of rasp, resonated x and resonator delete definitely does it
