Resonator for Exhaust

I have an i4 so I just wanna get that out of the way.

This issue applies to everyone anyway. My current exhaust set-up is like this: headers to test pipe to straight pipe to muffler.

I removed the factory cat, resonator and muffler and replaced those components with larger diameter piping, a test pipe and a Skunk2 Mega Power muffler.

Unfortunately, I'm getting a huge amount of drone on the highway. Its far too loud. I went online and started seeing information about high flow resonators such as Vibrant performance bottle style resonators. Anyone have experience with these? Or similar products? I'm interested in hearing if they actually work

I had to go with a resonator and a turbo muffler (not a straight thru design, but still a lot better than OEM) to quiet down my 4th gen Accord enough to make road trips tolerable. Had a header, high flow cat and a 2.25" cat back.

its not that the noise bothers me... I kinda like it... but over time the drone becomes more of a dull buzz in my head and I can't be having that all the time.

so I think i'm going to try out one of these 18" vibrant bottle style ones. They're under 100 bucks and everything I've read says that they work pretty good. Worth a shot...

Only question.. do I go for the ULTRA QUIET or just the normal one? Price diff is about 30 bucks

also the overall diameter of the regular bottle one is 3 1/2". The overall diameter on the ultra quiet is 6.75". Thats a HUGE difference and I'm pretty low so I don't want this thing to get scraped off on a speed bump... all opinions are appreciated.
