Default how do I flush mount a driver?

I am building Seas L18 / Seas 27TBFCG ZAPH AUDIO speakers " http://www.zaphaudio.com/audio-speaker17.html " and need to flush mount both of the drivers. How do I do this do I use a router? Any advice is greatly appreciated. This is my second pair of speakers I am trying to build lets just say I am really green when it comes to wood working.

Thanks
Robert

You need a router, a bottom cut (plunge capable) bit and a circle jig.

Hi,

if you dont have a router, add a layer to your baffle
with a cutouts for the tweeter and bass units.

If the depth is too much for the tweeter bevel its
hole at ~ 30 degrees, or alternatively do not fully
flush mount the bass unit, see :

http://www.zaphaudio.com/mtg-surface.html

Where he sort of contradicts what is said in the L18 design.
(Tweeters must be flush mounted, but not necessarily bass units)

/sreten.

Have a look at Patman's pages here, in his Home theatre/DIY section:
http://www.io.com/~patman/
He has literally hundreds of step by-step-pics of speaker construction and flush mounting drivers with his router.
BTW you can DIY a router circle-jig by bolting a bit of mdf to the router with a nail in it - easy!
