Which muffler should I get?

Hi all, new to calibers and to the forum. So far, found lots of good information here!

I have a 2011 Caliber Mainstreet (is it true that Mainstreet = SXT?) which is pretty much bone stock except for a drop-in K&N air filter. I'm looking to hack off the stock muffler
and get something a little nicer sounding, but I'm not sure which route to go. I'm not fooling myself by thinking I can get much performance boost out of the 2.0 CVT, but I want a nice rich tone that isn't so loud I can't carry on a conversation inside. Magnaflow straight-through? If so, what diameter round size is best for the 2.25in tubing? Flowmaster 40 series?

Also, I think it makes sense that a cat-back exhaust wouldn't sound too great with the CVT, but what do you guys think? Thanks for any advice!

There wasn't much done on the non-SRT Calibers

If you look back in the posts from 2007-ish there may be some people who modified their Caliber's exhaust, but I don't really remember.
