To flush mount round drivers you will need to buy or make a circle Jig.

You'll need to measure the radius and depth of the cuts, then set up the depth on the plunge router and the radius on the circle jig.

Then you drill the center holes, then do the cuts.

I use a home made jig but they are also available at parts express. The Jasper jig is quite popular.

The other method if you already cut the holes, use a rabbeting router bit, they come in various sizes. You change the bearing on the rabbet
for size and you adjust the router for how deep you want the flush
mount.

You can use the straight bit if it is wide enough. I have a few, I choose the appropriate one depending on the mounting flange of the driver I'm using. A 1/2" bit is probably good for most drivers.

A 1/4" is good for details like recessing more complicated shapes. Measure the size of the mounting flanges on the drivers and then get the right size, good quality, bits.
