Default custom exhaust being built, would like opinions?

hey guys, sometime in the next week or so, in addtion to finally having my b16a swap done to my 95 civic dx coupe, i am getting a custom exhaust made. i've already ordered the OBX twin loop muffler since I've read many good things about it. now, i'm thinking about running either 1 or 2 resonators. ive read about how the srt4's came from factory with no mufflers and running dual resonators, and they are a bit too loud for my taste. the way i figure it, with the twin loop, which i've read already dampens sound pretty good, shouldn't only one resonator be good for a good sounding exhaust? nothing loud and screamy? also, if i was going to go with 2 resonators, would this be restrictive on my exhaust? thanks guys, i appreciate it!
-john

EDIT: sorry i forgot to mention that i'm going with 2.5" piping

Twin loop mufflers restrict exhaust gasses.......I dont care what anyone or anything says.....the design speaks for itself. Get 1 resonator and 1 muffler.......a GReddy or magnaflow will work fine.

The reason an SRT4 can get away with that is because a turbo makes the exhaust quieter because the shock pulses comming from the valves are smoothed out as they cross through the exducer.

And +1 for 1 resonator and 1 muffler. I don't care for the twin loop myself.

Maganflow makes a whole range of different universal mufflers you can use.
