So I ordered a nice little compass off eBay the other day... then my impatience kicked in and I busted out the power tools. I found it's quite difficult to draw a perfect circle when you can't find anything in the house that is the right size. But lo and behold, I did a fairly decent job on my first set of spacers. These are 3/4" MDF rings for my old skool Kicker SS drivers.

What tips or techniques do you have to make a good speaker spacer when you don't have a router available?

Looks great, I'm trying to do the same thing, I bought 2 adapter, but it doesn't fit the speakers or door.

That's the same here. I test fitted about 3 different adapters but none of them were even close to perfect, so I made my own. They work great!

was gonna say router, but you said making them without one....more practice on the jigsaw I guess. I've seen guys that are pretty good with them
