The other day I was trying to clear out some junk to make space, when I realized I had been squeezing past a pair of raw particle board boxes for untold years. I can't even remember why I made them, but their dimensions - 10 1/2" by 14 1/2" by 27" - were perfect for the HUMAN 81+. So I drew some lines and dots on them, played with my drill press and a pair of routers, glued a bunch of braces in, covered them in speaker fur to hide the ugly, and loaded them up. They lived in the listening area as an example of what the larger cabinet size sounded like compared to the smaller HUMAN 81 until they were replaced by production cabinet versions of the 81+.
This is a tool I picked up a couple of years ago that makes cutting circles easy. A 1/8" pin is placed in the appropriate "compass hole", and you drill a 1/8" pilot hole at the center of the circle you want to cut. Cut the rabbet (driver inset) first, then the through-hole.
