Magnaflow Exhaust Question

I just received my full cat back Magnaflow system for my 535 (15543), and I have a question for those of you who have added a Vibrant Ultra Quiet Resonator to tone down the drone on aftermarket exhausts:

Where are you guys placing the resonators? The Magnaflow catback, has a front resonator that goes in the place of the stock center muffler; are you guys putting the resonator there? Or further back near the rear mufflers? I'm concerned about the same the resonators take up and want to make sure I instruct the muffler shop correctly.

Thanks in advance,

-Eddie

P.S. If any of you in the Orange County, CA area can recommend a quality muffler shop to do the install, I'd appreciate it.

but I'd install it right out of the box per Magnaflow and drive it for a while. Exhaust sound and drone are so subjective to personal tastes.

If you then decide you really can't stand it, replace the Magnaflow resonator with the Vibrant Ultra quiet resonator.
