It is fairly loud, but it doesn't bother me at all. I love the sound it has, good and deep. I think atvoutfitters has the best bang for the buck. You get all you need in one kit. Also if your worried about it being too loud when you order from them you can get the quiet core insert for $20 more. That gives you a choice, run without the quiet core and if it's too loud for you then put the core in. It's just an insert, take the end cap off and slide it in the re-attach the end cap.
