For those of you looking for an alternative speaker, US-made, British coils, give the Mojo British vintage series a whirl.

Their codes line up as

25M = greenback
30V = Vintage 30
30H = G12H30

I absolutely swear by them. Great bang for the buck on a US product.:cool:

I agree, I swapped a pair of Vintage 30's with a pair of 30 V's.
Same basic tonality, little less peaky / less cranky. Great tone.
Working mans speakers. Nuthin Fancy.....So far so good.

Great speakers! I swapped out a pair of V30's for the Mojotone BV30H's - love 'em! Not quite so peaky mids - more balanced tonality.

Hello, Scott
Just checker the mojo site....cones are made in Britian...speakers are made by an American co {someone mojo "teamed up with"}...doesn't say who.

it is very ordinary to buy cones. i believe celestion and weber uses kurt mueller cones for instance.

Here's a reply from Andy at Mojotone from an email I sent to them:

Thats a big negative - soft parts are all from England and hard parts were tooled in china for us by a manufaturer that assembles the whole thing in the US. Not em.

Hi,

I've been using 2 of your Mojotone BV30H speakers, and I LOVE them! Great speakers.

Just curious: *are these manufactured by Eminance*? Someone told me they are....

Thanks,

The china part sucks. I was mistaken. Great speakers nonetheless. China, taking over the world one DVD player at a time!

Great sounding speakers. I had one go bad that was about 2 months old. The warranty is only 30 days. I'd like to try another but cant take the risk on that happening again. I loved the way it sounded.

BTW mine was a BV30 around a 60 watt speaker in a 35 watt amp. Didnt blow it it just started intermittently working then not working. It was the speaker though. I even had a guy look at it he said nothing to do but recone it. I just chunked it.

I also was surprised by the sound of the BV-25M in an Atomic 20. Without being broken in it sounded better than the standard greenback with silkier highs, little tighter bottom and relaxed mids. Who is building them? I guess it is Weber or Eminence. Great sounding speaker.

Interesting thier site says the hard parts are made in the US.

What is the difference between your Mojotone BV Series speakers and the Goldtone Celestion speakers you sell?

The idea for the BV series came when Celestion moved much of their operations to the far east and began to use, what we considered critical parts i.e. the cone, that were sourced there as well. To our surprise, the Asian produced Celestion's have turned out to be excellent speakers but we often hear complaints of cone cry issues. We sourced the original soft parts (cone, spider, dust cover) from the correct British source and then had our own baskets and magnet assemblies tooled in the US. The result is an American made speaker with a British sound that is unmistakable. We did a lot of testing with some very demanding players and amp builders - mostly the kind who like their Marshall stacks and Gibson Les Paul's. We weren't done until they were satisfied that the tone was as good, if not better than their vintage equipment and the incidence of cone cry was substantially reduced. The idea to do this was such a good one that since Mojo introduced the BV series, every other speaker manufacture has attempted to do the same - including the most obvious one! Those who have had a chance to try them all agree the BV series stands out.

What sucks is, when I sold mine BV30H, I practically gave them away. I really like the scumbacks but, If I didn't have those, I'd still have the mojos

Here's the Mojotone M121660 speaker. It has an Eminence manufacturing sticker on it and looks like a standard Eminence speaker:
