Does a “catback” exhaust remove one or two resonators?

Hello, I’m new to the forum, I’ve popped on here a few times to learn a thing or two but never posted, I got a 21 Kia Forte gt last December with 21k miles on it now, did a few cosmetic mods, subwoofer and tint of course and want to get to the exhaust next, I’ve decided on the Xforce electronic valve exhaust as I’m in a college town with 4 police departments covering 5 miles. Anyways, I’ve heard people mention a secondary resonator on the gt, will this be removed with my main resonator as well when I install the catback? I know this may seem like a dumb question but I’ve never got under the back of the car and looked specifically for mini resonators, someone help me out

I don't have experience with the X-Force exhaust...looks like this might be a small resonator:

That's correct. The mid pipe has a mini-resonator that replaces the factory 2nd cat (1st cat is in the dump pipe) and factory resonator. Without a resonator there the car tends to drone so I think that's why Xforce put one there.
