crystalworks is on a distinguished road
I am willing to bet you have to cut the hole to clear your sub. Otherwise they wouldn't include it. I'm guessing on that, but BSW didn't include one because they didn't have to. I made my own grille panel like that and the BSW setup sounds a lot better.

They may just be including it for sound quality, but I'm guessing they need the extra clearance for the 10" sub as opposed to BSW's 8".
