Default Door trimming help

What's the best way to do some minor door trimming? I got some door speakers that are a little too big and don't fit in the door. I don't know what the best way to trim my door would be though. I only need to get rid of like 1/8" on each side. Tips? Advice on doing so?

Air nibbler (sheet metal nibbler) would be easiest.
Other than that, you can use a jigsaw with a very fine tooth metal blade.
-Or- you can even use hand help snips, but it will hurt your hand after a few inches. can be done though.

Hell if you only need an 8th and you have no power tools just use a metal file.

I was thinking about using the Dremel but I don't really know what bit to use.
