Default Anyone using the Helix Up/Dn/Cat-Back combo? How is it?

I see that a few vendors have a Helix uppipe, downpipe, and cat-back combo. It seems like a good deal for about $850. Can anyone tell me about this setup? How do you like it? More importantly, is it too loud? I watched the vid on Suby Dude's site, and I thought it sounded awsome, but how is it on a day to day basis (can you even hear your radio)?

I've got the Helix up and down with a Borla original cat-back (not the hush). I like the set up a lot. It's pretty reasonable at idle and easy driving. However, when you get on it, it really comes alive. Shifts above 5K are awesome!

I have the whole Helix shebang. Nice and mellow. I did have to buy a bigger amp for my subs.
