They are equal to each other, Fuji K. An 85db low tone is equal to an 85db high tone. Increase the volume by 15db for each, they are still the same volume. You will feel the low tone more and it will have a lower resonance, like a V8 engine. Where as the high tone will sound more annoying and make you want to cover your ears; such as a 1.8litre 4-cylinder engine.

Yeah, totally go with low tone! You don't want to sound like a Honda with an Oriental Rage / Cambel's soup can muffler on it. The Subaru boxer four has a great growling rumble to it... stick w/ a low pitch muffler. Check out www.northursalia.com 's download section where you can listen to a couple different exhaust sound files...
