I was amazed to discover that 'most' are Made in China and Fostex
( I believe ?) is made in India.
Many drivers even use Plastic frames.

Fostex are made in China (with some of the higher end stuff made in Japan). The best of the plastic baskets are superior to the typical cast basket.

India & Malaysia are developing speaker makers.

gee, carbon fiber is a "plastic", and if such a composite material is suitable for jet airliners and racing car monocoque chassis, can a 3-6" full range speaker offer challenges those applications don't?

of course when one is used to building enclosures for drivers with thinner small stamped metal baskets, it can take some adjustments

not all plastics are created equal, nor metal

For any speaker that isn't being thrown in and out of trucks at gigs, plastic is a very sensible material.

There's plastic, and then there's plastic. Polystyrene, polyethylene, ABS, the list goes on. Under the broadest definition of "plastic" even steel qualifies.
