1 or both resonators, that is the question.

Just bought an Aero Turbine 3030 off ebay a couple days ago and while awaiting delivery I have been pondering what will be the best set-up for it in the exhaust system.
I have an 06 1500 and that year, along with some 07's, came with two resonators. 1 before the muffler (after the Y-Pipe) and one at the end of the tailpipe. Which will give me the "beastiest" sound without the Harley Davidson crackle, which I've noticed with several AT 3030's,
1: Remove the front resonator (the larger of the two) and leave the rear or
2: straight pipe after the muffler.
or even a third option, putting the rear resonator where the front (larger) one is, loosing the larger resonator completely, and replacing the muffler with the 3030? So many options.... I don't have a welder at home, so every set-up I try will cost me bucks, so any advice would be appreciated.

Remove both resonators and put the Aeroturbine in. It will sound killer.....I took both of my truck and installed a Bassani race muffler on my 08...

I had just the AT3030 on my '03... for a short time. The in-cab drone was terrible going down the highway, so I installed Aero's resonator in front of the AT3030 and the drone disappeared. It did bring the rumble down a bit, but it was a good trade off

So do you think it would make much of a difference no matter which resonator i remove if only removing one? I'm not too worried about the drone but more about the motocycle crackle that some trucks make. I've been told to leave the front res on and straight pipe from muffler back to get that smooth throaty sound but not too sure if that'll do the job since the front res is so damn big. I don't want all the sound gone before it even gets to the muffler..
