Default labyrinth port?

I'm building a box for a single SA-8 V.2 D4 running off of an Audiopipe APSM-2000 ( gains will be set with a DD-1) but I was wondering about my box size. My port is 2x8x38 @35 hz. my box will be .72 after displacement. Subs up port back. I can only go 10 inches deep and 38 inches wide (height doesn't matter, I've got plenty of room). Can anyone help me design this thing properly? I would like to try doing a maze port with 4 bends in it, its the size I'm having trouble with and where my port will bend.

I'm not much help on what you're looking for but what is it going into?The reason I ask is because you could possibly go external port to take up some of the length and port it into the listening area.If that makes sense to you.

Imo a labyrinth box wont flow as good as a standard L slot box or an aero box. (easy with 4" pvc pipe frome home depot, cheap too at $9 for 24") I would just go to RE audio box calculator and either make you a L slot box there and it will give you a cut sheet or do a home made aero box witch would probably flow best....of course this is only this mans opinion....

Cut down on port area or go with a round port.

Or deal with an overly complicated design.

That's the nature of the beast with tiny boxes.

Re box calc is a no no. Use Torres box calc. I've built one labyrinth box for a cheap $25 lightening audio 10" I had. We threw it in the back of my step bros 97 Bonniville a few years ago on a dual 450watt amp... And it suprised the hell out of us. Could bounce the center consol and shake the review mirror, everyone we let hear it thought we had acouple 12s on acouple thousands watts when really just a crap 10 on a crap amp.... I say build the box and try it out
