There's not really a "better" one, it's all going to sound the same anyways, it just depends on what wiring configuration you're going to do, also depends on your amp specs, and if your subs are dual voice coil (DVC) or single voice coil (SVC). Which I'm pretty sure the P3 subs are all DVC.

So, if both P3 subs are 500wrms, you'd want to give them both 1000wrms or a little more to get the best performance. I wouldn't really under power them or really over power them. Anywhere from 800wrms - 1200wrms to both should be good.

Now, that amp isn't really powerful to power 2 P3 subs. Here's the specs I got off the website.

75 W x 2 @ 4 Ohms RMS
150 W x 2 @ 2 Ohms RMS
250 W x 2 @ 1 Ohms RMS
300 W x 1 @ 4 Ohms bridged RMS
500 W x 1 @ 2 Ohms bridged RMS

If you really want that amp, then your best bet is to get the 2ohm subs so you can wire them both to the amp bridged to get 500wrms. Both subs would be getting 250wrms, which is REALLY underpowering them.

Personally I would look for a bigger amp. IMO Fosgate amps are too over-priced and there are better out there for a lot less.

Another option, is to get 1 4ohm P3 and wire it to the amp bridged @ 2ohms, so the 1 P3 will get the 500wrms.

"THE FEATURES FOR THIS AMP:14.4VDC ,FREQUENCY RESPONSE:20+20k Hz,+/-0.5dB,SIGNAL TO NOISE:>80 dBA,EFFICIENCY:64.077%,QUIET TURN-ON/TURN-OFF: TURN ON DELAY-1.5 SECONDS,THE RMS @ 4OHMS IS 230,THE TOTAL RMS @ 2 OHMS IS 743,THE TOTAL RMS @1 OHMS IS 1044"The guy i ordered it from gave me these stats GhosT...So this made me think the amp could push these two subs.

Well he lied to you or you posted the wrong amp model in your first post.

It's a 500 watt 2-channel amp. It will work, but those P3's will need a lot more power to get them sounding like they should.
