find your center

find the RADIUS if your circle

get a pencil and a screw\nail

draw the radius on a piece of cardboard, and cut the cardboard to about 2" longer on eaither side of the ends of the line.

poke the nail\screw into one end and into the center of your wood, poke the pencil thru the other end of the line, and draw your circle.

cut.

^^Tis' A very good method. You can even drill holes at different lengths for different size holes. And you can reuse the same paint stick later. :)

I use a piece of paper for my 12" drivers. A letter paper is 11". You just fold it in half two times to find the center then a nail and a pencil. Always easy for me.

Most the time I use the Rubber thingy that comes with the sub...
