I see your logic, unfortunately it won't work that way. The fan can only push as much air there is space for. That's why one matches the fan to the ducting. The reducer actually will raise the airflow noise slightly due to it's increased velocity by being reduced in volume. If it were reversed so that it was a 6" fan going into an 8" duct, the noise would go down.

Your right. Having it setup that way with the 8" carbon filter will reduce noise. It's a bit overkill, but I've done that when it comes to noise or smell.
What y'all think so far ? - STELTHY
wvk 200mm 8 inch turbo fan 1088 m3/hour
Our wvk Turboflow In Line Fan range our powerful, robust and designed to work with carbon filters. The unique design of centrifugal fan with gaters increases the wvk Turboflow ability to handle the large resistances carbon filters develop.
100, 125 & 150, 200, 250 & 315mm diameter sizes available.
High pressure centrifugal impeller.
Mounting bracket included (may differ from size to size).
External rotor motor with thermal overload protection.
Flying powerlead to connect to UK plug, speed or environment controller.
The only thing I am curious about though is its price... it seems pretty cheap at only :- £63.99
and with shipping = £6.99
Total = £70.98
Has anyone used this one or can anyone suggest an equally powerful - if not more powerful In-Line fan of superior quality, Please let me know - STELTHY
