It still smacks of hoping the customer will look at the picture rather than reading the print (probably a fairly successful strategy), and it still makes them look more impressive to the casual observer.

Because it's still cheaper to have just one line, and the milling step is going to be automated anyway. The hole for the wires on a hypothetical genuine tweeter model would be poked through by hand by the person fitting the tweeter.

Yeah. Drill laying around with a 1/4 bit in it. No worries.

What annoys me is they prolly went to the trouble of getting a fake tweeter made for the lesser model.

SeanB:
That fake probably is an off the shelf part, as it is likely used by a good number of manufacturers of cheap tat, so as a part the first one who made a mould figured out they could make money running off a lot of copies and selling the excess, amortising their mould cost off faster.

If that were the case, then there probably would be a hole to pass wires (otherwise that would still require two different machining). There isn't.
