Default Routing the recess?

So I've read through most of my new book: "Woodworking with the Router" but have yet to understand how everyone is routing the recess around the speaker cutout.

So should I:

1.Use a circle jig and plunge into the recess first, then cut out the mounting hole

2.Cut out the hole, then use a template to rabbet/mortise the recess from above

3. Cut out the hole, then ride the edge of the hole to rabbet the recess

Thanks!
Paul

I also am interested to know this, as I will be building some bookshelf cabinets in a few weeks, and am told that not countersinking the tweeter is a bad idea.

Don't do any of that, throw the router back in the box and get a refund.

Then carefully use a hammer and chisel to make your holes, its what I do and the fit is perfect if you look at it from the right angle.

Hope this helps

PS. Its number 1 in your list

No. 1 is correct.

You can use #3 as well, simply cut the hole and then use a piloted rabbet bit to follow the outline of the hole. This method makes controlling the depth of the recess very easy.

Yeah, #3 and the method in the link are the same. I was considering this if I use the Peerless HDS woofers. Thanks guys!
