    I have a 4-12 cab, with 4 Celestion G12T-75's in it. I'm thinking about putting 2 Vintage 30's in it, and would like to know how to mic a cab like that in a live gig.
    thanks!

    Honestly, I would have the soundman mic each speaker and then just have him choose one while he's mixing. After the gig, ask him which one he liked and why. But every soundman will mix his own way with his own preferences so the next gig, if it's a different soundman do the same thing and see if there's a consensus.
