    How do you make your Speaker/Sub Rings?

    I've made a couple speaker/sub rings so far. However, I always have trouble making them nice and circular. What tools/jigs do you guys use? I've got a craftsman all in one cutting tool (Basically a rotozip) with a the supplied circle jig. Although I've yet to cut a good ring using this. If any of you are using one of these, do you have and tips? tricks? What do you folks use?

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Re: How do you make your Speaker/Sub Rings?

    Depending on the size, I use a router for larger ones (I usually just make my jig out of 3/4" MDF) and if I have small ones, I draw it out with a jig, then use a jigsaw.

    i use a compass to draw a circle and then just use a jig saw to cut it out

    a router with a circle cutting thing will give you the best circles
