exhaust help

Hi has anyone got a straight pipe with no back boxes on thete 159 2.4 jtdm?
Does it sound good or too loud? Getting one made tomorrow so need to decide if I put boxes on or not!
Thanks

Evening I have just completed a a decat and a straight threw on my alfa gt 1.9 the no boxes at all the drive of the car has improved and its not to loud if you keep it at low revs it's like not having an exhaust system ...you won't need any boxes also I look forward to a video ..

So I should go no boxes? I have allready got the cat and dpf removed, if I find it not a nice sound I could always get a box put in the middle section!!
Thanks

I'm looking at doing this on my 2.4 spider.
Been remapped and DPF removed. She sounds nice one but I really need to know what it's like with no back box's before I take the plunge.
Did you ever make a video?
And would you recommend it???
