Plenty more mileage in this one - before it's over, we also need to see lots of pics of the entire process and these should illustrate that the operator is wearing a dustproof suit, gloves, steel toecap boots, safety specs, chainsaw trousers, a hard hat (in date), and most importantly that the console has been earthed

I also hope he's using tinned cable for the speakers

:rolf: thats so near the truth . I used to have a college asessor
(read jobsworth) come to visit my apprentice on site . He would tell him to put a hard hat on in the customers house when we were fitting a kitchen and then get him to pose with a certain hand tool while he took pics to show evidence for his qualification .
After 2 years the lad still hadn't been taught anything about power tools let alone machines and the ass-essor used to tell me not to let him use any fast spinning sharp power tools ,a sander was about it .
Yet ask any DIY question and people go through the whole Black and decker catalog before choosing the wrong tool .

A hole saw is the correct way to tackle this mammoth task, hence the name of the tool.

You don't need a huge drill, I normally use an 18 volt battery drill when cutting speaker holes in glass, and also use the same drill to cut 4 1/2" exhaust pipe holes in 2" transoms! You've just got to take it slow.

Charlie says
You can buy a range of different saws for different materials to and remember to check behind the area of the hole for cables etc and tell someone what your doing and when you'll be back

Thats great I agree a cordless is better etc , but thats £40 for one holesaw , fine if you are using it for your profession , but for a one off ? Also chances are you also need to buy the arbor at another £20 . Plus big powerful cordless drills are not narmally owned by DIYers
Secondly knowing what holesaws are like to use some experience is a very good idea before going in head first with a holesaw that size .
