Default weird pa loudspeaker driver

My mate works in a disco repairshop,and he always gives me anything old,damaged or cheap.

Yesterday he gave me a GAUSS 12 inch bass driver,rated 300w rms,8 0hm.It has a huge magnet,and gold push terminals,paper cone,and plasicised cloth surround,White frame.Also their is a weird heatsink-like cover which screws onto the magnet.I think i could actually be a heatsink,because it has metal fins.
One thing which really puzzles me is NO VENTED POLE PIECE on a 300 watt rms made by Gauss.Why would this be either the magnet cover is really a large heatsink,or the speaker is very old.
I think it might be old because of the white frame[chassis],but the magnet is a normal ferrite ceramic type.
Could someone please tell me the model no.,just by my description.
It amazingly works brillant for a speaker for free,but i don't know whether it will withstand testing it at high volume for hours.
Also it's extremely heavy[about 12kg] magnet and frame.
Does anyone know whether GAUSS is good like JBL,Fane,Eminence,Celestion,RCF,EV,PD, or any other well known pa/disco driver.
Thanks...... Tom

When i was doing PA work (early 80s) they were considered among the better units. Certainly a step up from the Celestions we most often used.
