Question muffler

So i figured i dont really want to buy catback exhaust after reading about it here cause you get minimal hp gain and the only thing that changes is sound. So should i just get a different muffler? and what kind? I want a deeper sound cause right now mine sounds like a Honda/weed-wacker....its a thermal exhaust.
