Talking apexi n1 silencer noise?

Hi, I have an n1 catback, and used to have a silencer back in the day. The silencer was shaped with a 'V' profile- resembled a oil funnel thingy kinda- wide mouth at the top to a smaller opening at the bottom. The width of the opening where exhaust travels is the same, it just widens out toward the end of the exahust tip, to seal the exhaust tip.

Anyways, I sold it years ago and now recently picked up a used one to quiet down my exhaust some, now that I am moving to a new development. Anyways, this "n1 silencer" I got used off ebay is shaped like a can. Its a full cylinder, and a smaller opening on each side. Inside there apears to be some baffling, like a small pipe (metal) with holes in it.

Anyways, when I put it on my car last night to test it out, it sounds terrible. I put my cell up to it to play for a friend, and he couldnt stop laughing. Sounds like (for lack of a better description) someone jerking off. It goes 'flap flap flap flappity flap' and i can feel that the exhaust is just leaving from the outlet at the center of the silencer (like it should).

Its disgusting.

Is this a knockoff silencer or maybe one of the older versions? Is that noise normal?
