When I picked my bike up, I was lucky enough that there was a Speciale with a full Akrapovic system sitting right next to my bike.
I asked the dealer if we could start up both bikes to compare the sound and noise level.
He started up my bike and I couldn't believe how loud it was. I was assuming that the slip ons were going to be quieter than the full system.
As soon as he started up the Speciale, I was happy that I didn't spend the extra money on buying the full system. The slip ons sound nearly exactly the same as the full system and my bike was actually considerably louder than the Speciale.

Of course the full system looks bad arse with the pipes coming through the belly pan and gets you an extra 4 HP over the slip ons. But wasn't worth the extra $2000 difference in my opinion.

I hope this helps you mate.

I think the reason why yours was louder is because the baffles are not in your slip on and they were probably in the full system on the Speciale. I was gonna take them out of mine but she’s loud enough for me

I ordered them from Lieb Speed. Here's the link:
Lieb-Speed - V4-Factory Store

They arrived in under 2 weeks and the quality is flawless!
The carbon matches all the Ducati Performance carbon too which is a nice touch to the bike.

Install took under 30mins as well.

Surprisingly the baffles were removed from both bikes.

Even the dealer was shocked that mine was louder as it doesn't make sense why slip ons would be louder.
