if you cut out the speaker holes already and were thinking of using your dremel 4000 to cut out the rings i don't see how it will work , assuming you are going to use or improvise a circle gig , there is nothing to center that with the holes you already cut . start over , or use the jig saw to finish the rings you started .

if i see it right you made the outer cut , and you need to cut the center out next ? i think your dremel 4000 could do it , a circle jig makes for nice holes , you can use some flat steel or aluminum to make one if you don't have one .

what exactly is it that has you stuck then ?

yea your right i justneed to make the inside cut..i guess my question was whats the proper measurment for that inside cut and the best way to make that cut with my jigsaw and dremel..but these vids helped alot i seen smd's before but that top one helped the best..can i get this circle jig at home depot or lowes?

yeah i think you can find a jig a t lowes or menards or somewhere . best deal for router circle jig i have seen is thru rf ,http://www.rockfordfosgate.com/shop/shop.aspx?purl=https://secure.rockfordcorp.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpSctDspRte.jsp?section=12005&sitex=10105:54419:US

looks like there is a jig for your dremel 4000 . my first choice for this job would be a router though , don't know how you can round over or shape your rings with out one ether .
