I just need a quick simple response on the cutout for the 12" alpine type R, building a box and I want to be 100% sure before I go with my measurement. I've searched around for 20 minutes and can't find anything, so I just need a quick response before I go cutting. Also, what's the best way to get the jig-saw into the MDF to cut the ring out?

not sure about the hole cut out for the Type R but you only need to drill a hole large enough for the blade to fit into then get going off of that. If you have a decent jig saw, like my Makita, you can start the blade at full speed and actually tip it (cutters toward work piece) into the piece slowly and it will begin to cut down into it plunging it into the piece. Works well.

look in your owners manual for the cutout? ha...and to start a jigsaw hole when i used mine for cutting circles..i just drilled a hole in the piece big enough for the blade to get in.

mark where the screws go on the box then estimate a circle alittle smaller then the marks, if its too small, cut some more

If you plan on building more boxes, get a router and a jasper jig...holy hell, it was easy as pie. I just finished my box for 2 12" type-r's and it took a whole 10min to cut both holes...
