What method do you guys use to cut circles for your guy's subs. I know the basics of woodworking and such, but how would I go about cutting out the circles for the subs.

a router and a circle jig. flat out the best method if you know how to use them. Remember measure twice and cut once is always key...

How much are routers, or any other method that I could use to cut the circle?

There are a lot of other methods, like a jig saw, Rotozip for example, but a router w/ jig will give you perfect results.
BTW, the Rotozip tried to kill me many times.

whats a rotozip?

Its a cross between a Dremel and a true router, dont buy it. Its not powerful enough to cut mdf, and it tried to kill me.

If I didn't have any of the aforementioned tools what would be the cheapest to buy?

I us a roto zip.. But It won't help much with anything over 12" ... well the jig that I have for it anyway..

I use a compass and a jigsaw.
But that's because I'm real good at keeping my hand steady and cutting perfect(ish) circles, if you can get a jig with a clutch it helps a lot compared to a one speed jig.
