Celestion Rocket 50 opinions?

I'm currently modding my EVJr, Thanks to TWANG, for the parts, & Thanks to Batman, for the informative thread.
I'm thinking of building a 2 12 cabinet for the evj head, & was looking for opinions on the C Rocket 50's, for a budget cabinet.
If you have them in a cab, or have had experience with these,
let me know if these would be suited for the evjr, & the style of music I play.
I play mostly classic rock, & blues, and this will only be used for
practice, & some garage jammin.
Thanks for the help,

Re: Celestion Rocket 50 opinions?

I had a pair of these speakers very briefly in my 212. They had that wonderful combination of boomy bass, ice pick treble with little to no mids. I swapped them as fast as I could for a combination of WGS speakers; Invader 50 and Reaper HP. This is an excellent speaker combination as they compliment each other very nicely. I play my modded EVJ through this cab and love the tone; nice bass response, chimey top end and a full midrange.
It's good to have certain restrictions sometimes, but it's definitely more fun to play really loud, with distortion - J Mascis
