It allows sound waves from the exhaust to resonate in an enclosed chamber so that it is not as loud when it exits the vehicle.

When I had the exhaust replaced on my Civic years ago, I pulled the resonator out at the same time.

That lasted about 3 weeks.

I had a new one welded in after a few blasts on the highway.

I am confident that the noise and vibration without it has had lasting effects on my hearing.
