Hello, I have 2 12 inch fosgate p3's.
I've been reading around about enclosure box's and I've heard that
for sound quality, they are just as important as the woofers. Just
wondering if thats true, and if so, whats a good enclosure box to get
that will make my quality of sounds louder/better

Thanks

I feel the box is more important than the choice of speaker, personally, since it has mroe effect on the resulting sound of the driver in question, and has to be built to the T/S specs of the individual driver for best results.

here's a brief summary of box types:

see if that gives you a good idea. I'd recommend going with a ported box for the P3s.

yes vented and ported mean the same thing.
prce range will vary, but have the box custom built by someone with experience.

Usually you're looking at 50-200 bucks, or higher as the design gets more complex or larger. 50-150 is a good ballpark though for a ported box for one or two subs.

there is a thread in the subwoofer section for a guy offering to build sub enclosures for people for payment. He's a board regular, and a cabinetry/carpentry guy.
Find that thread and email him.
