Need to mount a pair of RE tweets in my door panel. What do you guys use to cut the holes for them? Isnt there a specific style of bit I could get for my drill to use?

called a hole saw. measure your tweet (bring it with you) before you buy one. and make sure the hole saw is the diamater of the MOUNTING flange on the tweet.

if you cant find one that it will work with - justa jigsaw\bansaw and be patient.

I actually used a utility knife, I couldn't find my dads hole saw. Dremels also do the job.

Well you could thread the actualy blade through the hole after you make a small opening, then cut it out from there :)
