Can I get away with not enlarging the hole without causing any issues? Basically, a 12" sub firing through an 8.5" hole.
A two to one compression ratio is no problem, air is easily compressible.
I've run compression ratios of ten to one and ran into issues, but even that is doable if you add a coupling chamber in front of the woofer to reduce turbulence.
In principle it would be quite simple to waste the surplus labour of the world by building temples and pyramids, by digging holes and filling them up again, or even by producing vast quantities of goods and then setting fire to them. (Orwell)
