Yeah, about that bolt...  So did you turn it or did you?! :-\  Please tell me you didn't turn it. :-\  I hope to God you didn't.  Somewhere a kitten might die.  Please tell me you didn't.

Actually, I have owned/used some of these in the past (first few years they were out) and never even noticed this bolt.  It might be possible the ones I had didn't have it.

I think it is either to drain them out, or it might even be for the "cooling hose" option. :)

That would be the Community AirForce...  a significant improvement of power compression that never achieved a market impact because Community was fundamentally clueless about what it takes to market to the touring and large-format portable market.

It's where you screw in the spike, to keep people from setting drinks on the sub.

It's where you screw in the sign that says Stay Off

Flux capacitor injection bias screen port. The Crown Belchfire 6000SUX had one also. Very handy, especially for Bluegrass festivals with dueling Banjos.

If you take the bolt out it will retune the box to a lower freq. at the expense of system headroom. This is explained in the manual. I believe they call it the Dub Step bolt.
You did read the manual right?

I doubt it is for flying. Does anyone know the purpose of this bolt?
Look on top left on this pdf and you will see the bolt in the pic.   Yours is not a mistake.
Im thinking what one poster said here and that is a place to put an eye bolt to hang and paint.

I was just reading an information sheet on these... this graph concerned me slightly.
