“Exhaust tips do not change the sound for your Dodge Charger!”
You read that right.
There is a debate in many Dodge Charger owner’s mind on whether or not exhaust tips change the sound of your Dodge Charger as you rip through the highway.
Sound? Probably not.
But that does not mean they are useless.
Just like when you are making the decision to choose between Mopar vs Weathertech floor mats, every car part plays an integral part in your car driving experience.
If you already decided between Boss 338 vs Ridler 695 wheels, that’s good.
But right now, we are talking about the exhaust system, more specifically the exhaust tips.
- Do exhaust tips change loudness?
- Do exhaust tips make my Dodge Charger quiet?
In this article, we will discuss what are the best exhaust tips for your Dodge Charger.
We will also go one step beyond that and talk about how you can go about actually changing the loudness of your exhaust system.

Best Dodge Charger Exhaust Tip Size
4” or 5” exhaust tips are the crowd favorites.

The 2” or 3” exhaust tips look out of place on a Dodge Charger.
Best Sounding Dodge Charger Exhaust
You have two options:
- Do you want a whole exhaust system?
- Do you want to replace the mufflers or resonators?
Both of these options can change the sound of your Dodge Charger exhaust volume but they will be priced accordingly.
In the previous section, I listed and described the best exhaust tips for a Dodge Charger.
Changes to the exhaust tips or the tailpipe will, at best, have minimal changes to sound pitch and volume.
They are mainly a cosmetic upgrade.
Physics still applies to new installations of exhaust tips:
- Larger tips, larger diameter – You will have a more throaty sound
- Smaller tips, smaller diameter – You will have a more raspy sound
Tone will be affected by the size of your exhaust tip.
What about loudness?
Using and revving up a truck, this was the difference between sound loudness:
- 4” exhaust tip – 1124 dB
- 6” exhaust tip – 1139 dB
This is a 0.013% difference in sound loudness from a 4” exhaust tip to a 6” exhaust tip.
It can be observed that slightly larger exhaust tips will not have any significant difference in sound volume.
To truly make a difference in sound, you will need to replace or upgrade your muffler.

Quad vs dual exhaust tips sound difference
The quad exhaust tips may have a deeper, rumbling sound compared to a dual exhaust tip.
However, this can vary greatly depending on so many different variables.
But with a quad exhaust tip, there are several immediate factors that could point to why there is a deep, rumbling sound:
- Two channels of exhaust tips for sound to travel through
- Sound traveling through two adjacent mediums
Though these are small subtle differences, they can affect pitch.
An easy example of this is musical instruments, where closing certain channels will lower or raise the pitch of the instrument.
If you want a permanent change in your Dodge Charger’s exhaust sound, you should review my previous section above on how to change your muffler or exhaust system to fit your needs.
