Default Deep Sounding Exhaust Tip for My 95' Integra RS?

I've been doing some research on Youtube and so far, on Teggy's I've like the Apexi N1, it sounds deep and chill. But I really have no idea what I'm doing lol. I just planned on buying an exhaust tip, not the whole system. I have headers, (I don't know which brand) & the owner before me took out the resonator, so I now have a straight pipe. I've heard those two things help with exhausts. With that being said, are there any specific tips that will do my car good because of the headers, straight pipe etc?

No inline-4 cylinder will have a deep sound, nothing against them, that's just the architecture. Exhaust "tips" don't change the sound. Mufflers just change the volume, not the actual pitch. The actual tone of the exhaust comes from how frequent the exhaust pulses come out of the tailpipe and how big those pulses are (engine displacement and configuration). Ever wonder why a Subaru 4 cylinder sounds more like 2 Harleys racing each other than any other 4 cylinder car? It's because the 2 exhaust pulses from 1 side come out, then the 2 from the other side, instead of alternating. That makes it sound like 2 V twins. The I-4 engine in your Integra would have an exhaust pulse every 180 degrees of crankshaft rotation. By comparison, a V8 has an exhaust pulse every 90 degrees of rotation. Bigger cylinder means more pulse and a deeper tone.

So in essence, just changing the muffler (or tip as you referred to it) will make it louder, but not deeper.
