    Speaker Rings

    I have to make a couple 6.5" mdf rings in about a month. I have read other posts where people were asking about them. If there is interest I'll take some pictures and put together a how-to. They are very simple to make, so a tutorial may not be neccessary. Let me know.

    honnestly, just a picture of the jig should be enough to show people how to do it!

    a router with a plate on it is what we use....guess I could take a pic of that too if there is interest

    Yes, Yes, I like to know how to do it. If possible, can you take a pic of the plate by itself so that I know what to look for at HW store.

    the plate isn't something that you buy premade...you can but the plate costs like $70. You can make one a lot cheaper....just have to know what to make...

    it's essentially a piece of plastic that has holes strategically drilled for different sized speakers...

    or if you buy it it looks like this:

    I had meant this as an idea more than a step by step. You can use any circle jig you like. The reason I say this is that it is unlikely that many people willl be using the same tools I use. The rings I'm making are recessed about 1/4" on the inside so the speaker sits inside the ring. They are also recessed about an 1/8" on the outside to give a space to staple the cloth. The attached image is a crude rendering of the rings

    you can make that with two pieces of wood stuck together, or use the router to put a lip on it

    Now I know what you are talking about.
    I don't think I can build it myself though, are they sold in specialty stores?
