Is there an optimal proportion for a sealed box? Is a perfect square best? If a rectangle shape is better, what should the proportions be? Does it matter?

I tried searching and wasn't able to find anything. I apologize if i missed the info somewhere.

I'm trying to build a box for a Sundown E8

Sealed Box:
0.280 ft^3 w/ F3 of 50 Hz (Qtc = 0.707)
Sub Depth = 4.25"

Thanks in advance

Looks like I didn't search for long enough

New Question: Optimal sub location? Looking at the box in that link, would i be best to put the sub at the top, side or front?

Closest i could get considering the size and depth of the sub are

Internal Size:

5" x 11.5" x 8.5"

Depth = 4.25"
OD w/ gasket = 8.34"
Cut Out = 7"


Thanks for the help. Maybe i'll turn this thread into a little build log to make some use of it. lol
