Our house uses a low pressure water system. Since installing new bath and shower mixers recently (imported chinese), the pressure or flow from these mixers has dropped very noticable. The old mixers that came out are at least 11 years old, or possibly as old as the house which is 25 yrs old. Would the reduced flow be the result of the difference in design of the new mixers compared to the old models?

Reason: More accurate details
Not sure what a "low pressure water system" is???? Normal household pressure ranges from about 35-70 PSI. Modern faucets have flow restrictors built in, limiting flow ot 2 1/2 GPM. This is likely different from the old faucets, not sure if it is a problem, however.
