    I'm buying a pair of new Greenbacks. Just wondering if they are all made in the UK.

    Is country of manufacture something I need to look out for?

    Regards

    China hates America.

    Not all made in UK. No need to worry where they are manufactured. Both country’s speakers are good. Only a cork sniffer would tell you otherwise.

    They're both good speakers. They're different, but no more different than two old G12M's would be.

    Heritage Greenback models are still made in the UK, but the G12M25 reissue Greenbacks are made in China.

    I like the reissues, they are great sounding speakers.

    The Chinese Greenies sounds pretty good to me... I use a pair on my 2x12... I also have the Heritage 55HZ (UK) and they're on my Fargen Mini Plex combo.....
