Does anyone have a suggestion for a tool or method for cutting out speaker openings in baffles? I use a "compass" I made, draw the circle, then jigsaw it. It is a less than factory perfect job. It would be nice to do it in one step. (ie: I could have a template, rough out the cut, then go around with a router, but that's too many steps.)

fantastic thread title....

I believe you can get/make a jig for a router to make a perfect circle of varying diameter, amp/cab makers tend to have them but I would have no idea where to find one

One of my ex-girlfriends had that problem.

OK. That's enough jokes about the thread title. Anyone else that makes a post joking about the thread title will get a warning or banned. Only post serious stuff and try to help from here on.

You can get a circle cutting Jig for a router and use that to cut the speaker hole out. You could even make said Jog.

All you essentially do is have a straight piece of wood, and a way to secure it at one end to the center of the circle you will be cuttting out. Have a long channel cut out that a router can slide in to the desired radius, and then go.

Sorry about the title.

Looks like a 2 step process is what is required for 5/8 or so baffle boards to save on router bits. But the link above has me thinking. I could probably rig up something like that for the jigsaw.

Thanks for the replies!

Sure could, you would obviously want to drill out a hole for the jigsaw, but it is entirely possible. I had something similar I used for awhile to cut out holes for some speaker cabinets I built for a project in college.

Harbor Freight has a tool that goes on a drill that has an adjustable radius.
