The larger the pipe the deeper the sound. Also, the thickness/type of metal pipe you use changes the sound. Thicker metal makes a more solid sous while thinner metal makes it kinda tinny sounding

That drone depends a lot on the muffling device, although anything bigger than 6" would be excessive loud. My 4" stack doesn't have any more cab noise than the tailpipe did, just lucked out on choosing the right muffler.
