Default muffler talk

Noticed the other day that my muffler has a hole in it. Time to shop around for something new. I'm thinking flowmaster 50 series. I want something throatier. I love the way that GP'* sound, but I'm not sure how to get that exhaust note in the Bonneville. Do they use resonators?

There is a big resonator that goes out through 2 mufflers ( GT and GTP only).

Those mufflers wont fit on Bonnevilles. I don't know what another option would be.
