    Usually pretty simple.
    Remove old speakers, trace around outside of old ones, cut out with a jigsaw.
    Get grille ring from new speakers, place centrally on cut out MDF, trace around inside of grille ring, cut out with a jigsaw.
    Mark & drill mounting holes for screws.
    Job done.

    It will depend on what size speakers you fit, but the process will be similar, just a different size.

    No, you can use ordinary MDF & paint it.
