yes you should. You're suffering $20 opportunity costs for each piece. Scrap sub cutouts are great for speaker baffles.

Once you have a few templates, all you'll need to do is use your flush trim bit to make many more easily

Yea thats what Im thinking. Maybe purchase some off ebay for templates, and resale on ebay? Is that illegal? LOL

Thats the reason I keep all my cutouts :laugh:

I don't see why it wouldn't be legal. Unless someone has patents on odd shaped pieces of MDF.

You would probably also profit from 8" - 12" speaker rings for those who'd like to do fiberglass work.

si, i think you could make speaker rings and just sell them on here.... as long as your selling them already made and not making them for someone i think its ok

If its just simple round rings, that wont be a problem at all, I already do that every once in awhile. But Im looking to get some templates for other adapters and such.

BJ, It'd be hard to compete with the rings...I give them away for free....but I am inconsistant (sometimes I have spare mdf, sometimes I don't)

But as for making specific custom rings...maybe a nice niche market. If you could make some that would fit my s-10...hell :laugh:

That's what i'm looking for not just rings, BMW speakers require a odd shaped adapter. I'm PM a pic later.

Similar to these:

Plus the guy on ebay does not carry adapters for my X5.
