turn down exhaust tips

Hi all,

have the 08 197 and while i love how loud it is along with the rumble, i just want to tone it down a bit and take the low end out a little bit so it's not so disruptive in the mornings to my neighbors. That being said, i don't want to get rid of all the noise at all but like i said, not sure all my neighbors appreciate it at 730am when skiing the course. Been looking for turn down exhuast tips but not sure which ones to buy/will fit my boat. can anyone help point me/ put some links in the right direction? thanks.

Sounds line you want a fresh air exhaust setup to some extent.

To some extent yes, just without the reductions in engine power. And somethinf that keeps the noise but takes away that low end “rumble”

Won’t matter to your neighbors unless you’re over 10 miles away. I can hear boats with big rumble way up the lake before I can even see them. The sound really carries on the water. It’s like hanging out with a dude who smokes. I know you’re not actually smoking right now, - I can tell you just burned a heater 2 minutes ago.

Tell the neighbors that they live on a lake with an active skiing scene.

Have you seen documented power loss? I've never seen that in literature on FAE.

They are now standard on the 2018 Prostar, compared to my 2012 Prostar it has reduced the noise but your neighbours will still here the boat
I cannot see why they would not fit

i was told that there are FAE's that could reduce engine performance. Maybe they are just cheap one's that aren't built well then? i'm by no means an expert on them.

I'm putting some turned down exhaust tips of my '03 197 this week if not very soon. Have inline stainless baffled mufflers already, no loss in engine rpms, will see what the turned down tips will do, they will also be baffled. Wish I had something that could read the decibels before and after. The tuned downed tips I will be using are for Malibu's. Think there a bit more beveled on the ends, but close to the above pics. Just a late winter project I didn't get to, but for the same reason, early morning course skiing. People of late, just don't appreciate a nice rumble in the mornings.
