are you going for looks?your probally wont notice much in sound unless lowering the ohm load on your amp will give you some more watts,remember i had that 8" L7 with my vr15's the only reason i had that 8" was to lower the ohm load that my amp was seeing so i could get the most out of that amp i had,the way you have it set up it just dosent seem like the sound would get past the 12's 8" are not really loud that L7 i had was ok after i had 600 watts going to it ,i had 15's so any punch was helping my system ,as far as looks goes i would do it it would look sick !!then you would want to turn that box around again so you could see all 4 subs shit you could fit 2 8's on each side if you wanted or a 10" on each side ,those vr 8"s need barley nothing for air space they are super easy to work with!!i say do it bro!!

You would likely end up with cancellation by running 8's and 12's, and would likely end up with LESS bass than you have now. If you want to put some 8's in there somewhere, put them up front somehow in order to run a 3 way component set up front. Just my $.02

Assuming you have 6.5"s up front and you said you have 12" subs in the back, an 8" really isn't going to gain you anything at all. More is not better. If you were running some 15" subs or had smaller mid woofers up front then some bandpassed 8"s might help with the midbass response. But in your current setup they will be nothing but something to sit and look at...
