It had a purpose in the factory but now it's just sexy.

If a cabinet needs to be hung on a wire for spraying a finish, they'd use a driver mounting bolt/T-nut hole. They wouldn't waste time & hardware drilling a hole and installing a nut & bolt.

How would they cosmetically dress the hole once the paint dries ?

Using a hole under the grill eliminates the cosmetic needs of the finish covered by the hang wire.

If you consider where the grille is on the LA400 this might not be as sensible as you think.

The hole, if left open, is an air leak in the compression chamber. It needs to be plugged.

It's obviously the restraining bolt.
Don't remove it or you may wake up in the morning to find your speaker has wandered off into the desert in search of it's real owner.

If you remove it, then it is no longer an EAW speaker.
