Recommended Posts

I did some hobo style cutouts on mine with a jigsaw: took a string, measured it out to the cutout of my subs, tied it around a pencil and bam. there's a circle on my board. just follow the line close as you can, if you're really picky you can just sand it a bit, no biggy

I like that.. getting creative with the things around you!

LMAO its what i have in the basement! wth is plunged and fixed? lol i asked my dad about his and he has a router so maybe all i will need is the bit and the jasper jig? im going to need to make 6 holes and i may build my own boxes for my home speakers too.. so it may be worth it for me to buy the parts

pick your poison, two routers under a $100 each, one is even a plunge router. Go get a jasper jig for about 60 and your'e set to cut any damn hole you want. You can get a set of bit tat will do about anything you need for about 30 to 40 bucks. Best investment you'll make once.

here are some bits.

By the way, all this stuff is available at manards for about the same price.

edit.

Also i know all this adds up to 180 or so, but would you rater pay some guy at a shop, or have tha satisfaction of doing it yourself?

everything this brilliant man as said~ +1.

Also after you buy it the first time, you keep it for a life time for whatever you might find a use for. And Manards is a wonderful place to shop for tools as well, they carry the real shit not shitty walmart brand tools.
