Are all Celestion speakers made in China except for the Heritage series?

If not, does anyone know about the G10N-40 and G10F-15 found in the JMP1 and JTM1 50th anniversary amps respectively?

And the alnico's are U.K. made.. except the ones found in Vox amps. The Blue's that are sold separate are U.K. made.

I've read that Celestion was bought by a Hong Kong conglomerate in 1990. Even speakers saying England on the back were made there.

Then what you have read is clearly incorrect. The Heritage G12 speakers have "Made in England" printed on the back, it would be illegal to label them this way if they were not.

Not sure what your point is? Are you suggesting that a reputable company such as Celestion that has been in existence since 1924 would openly disregard the law and fraudulently miss represent where their product was manufactured, personally I find that impossible to believe!

no, not all ..just a poor attempt at poking fun at some “over there” practices.
