    celestion does make some great speakers.
    in the guitarist world they are more popular than eg. eminence, but i´m not sure about the bassist world.

    *
    i think the G in G10S-50 means this was originally a guitar speaker, but probably with lower resonance, making it more soutable for use with a bass.
    the S means "small magnet" (M = medium size, H = heavy)

    Those are great speakers, had some in the same cab but lent it to someone and they blew one, so go easy on them.

    It may not explode but you may have issues with vibrations when you put it back together. It may sound like one of the speakers is blown but what is happening is the post inside is vibrating against the back panel. If this happens take the back off and put some cloth between the post and the the back and also make sure you tighten the screws holding the back on real tight.
