I have created this template for D2000s, it should work for the D5000 as well with a few modifications to the ear cup piece. Gray shades are to be cut out. I used this exact template for my friends new D2000. The holes align very accurately but you must tape the template down and not let it move around when punching the holes. Hope this makes the MarkL mod easier!
The revised version includes strips for the outer drivers, that seems to be easier to work with.
MarkL suggested not to cover the gray disk and leave the gray disk as "naked". The hole in the inner driver is now enlarged 20%. I have also added additional cut markings on the ear cup screw posts areas because they need to be larger. A 1" gray square was added so that you can measure to verify scaling of the template.
You can follow the how to mod here.

Print the PDF at 100% no scaling, verify the 1" square for accurate sizing of the template.

Cut out each piece with spacing around the edge and place them all on the Dynamat, these should arrange in such a way that it fits on one 10"x10" Dynamat (Speaker Kit size)
Amazon.com has 2 sheets of 10"x10" Dynamat Extreme for under $19 (free shipping with Prime).
