Tru X Pipe VS Resonator?

I have this exhaust set up on my car:



It's not loud enough for me

My question is if I add a Tru X pipe instead of the Resonators would it be louder?

Here is the part I'm looking at:



would it be louder? can I see a significant increase in sound?
Thank you

Would it be better to do a resonator delete all together? and just have straight pipes?

x pipe is straight pipe, and yes a resonator does alot, removing it would be way louder

you want to keep something connecting the sides together just after headers, and after cats, it adds performance by transferring pressure to next cylinder fire, or something, doesnt make sense to me

As the exhaust from one side exits, it creates a suction effect and helps the otherside move out faster. Like if you had to straws with an "x" pipe connection and you blew out of it, the other straw would get some suction effect. I hope that explains it.
