How loud is a Perrin catback?

Hey, I just got rid of my SRS that the previous owner installed, it was way to loud for trips. I'm really looking for something that won't have too much bass and won't leave me and my wife with a headache, me and my wife both thought the SRS was too loud. But my stock STi is almost silent after being used the the other.

I'm looking at this: Subaru Impreza STI, WRX ,exhaust
It's the right price and the right time, I'm just wondering where you who've heard it would rank it, 1 being as quiet as a stock STi catback, 10 being loud and bassy and droning on the freeway at constant rpms as a cheap ebay SRS, which wasn't my thing. But I definitely want something that sounds muscley when I first step on it, but I don't need to turn heads at a constant 2000 rpms.

It's a standard Perrin, not twin tip, not dual tube, not sure if it's stealth or sport tone. All I found searching is Vew said it's loud, but I've also heard the opposite.

I tried to check out that link, but it has expired... I'm not too familiar with Perrin exhausts, but maybe you could update the link for those who might be able to give you some advice.

Dang, It expired last night after I posted it. It was just a craigslist link to the actual catback. It was just for a picture.

It's loud. I mean, far from the loudest WRX exhaust I've ever heard but it's pretty loud. If stock is a 1/10 and a straight pipe is a 10/10, I'd say it's a 6/10

Ya, it's not the loudest, but it's defiantly loud. Here's mine on the dyno.
