it depends on what mic you have, and whether you own the amp or not

Dynamic mic right infront of the cone or a condenser mic across the room
Out here you've gotta know where your towel is!

Not right in front of the cone, slightly offset I find sounds better

Honestly, asking how to mic an amp would be like asking how to do your laundry or how to cook your steak. Everyone prefers different things. Try different positions and then use the one you like the most.

a royer r121 is the best for that amp.

In front of the cone, off to the side at the edge, close mike, far mike... they're all valid. It all depends on what you're looking to achieve. Which mike you use is open to debate. A popular mic is the SM-57. There are several other good choices, too. I like to double mike my cabs, on occasion. I'll use an SM-57 and then a Neumann condenser in a close mike situation. The Neumann really mixes well with the Shure.

What's your mike budget?

ATM I'm running thru Emul out into do box into pa for big gigs. If a mix sounds better than I'll do that. 99$ or less for mic

At $99, you're not getting a whole lot. I'd recommend going with the Shure SM-57. In a gig situation, with a PA, the condenser has more potential for feedback.

It will sound better than the emulated out? Is there a special stand for it?

You aren't gonna get a whole lot for 100. Yes, you can pick up an sm57 for that, but you'll still need an interface.

To close mic that, you'd want to set it up close/touching the grille and for starters, position it halfway between the center of the cone and the edge. Than play with it from there and see how you like it.

But again, you'll need an interface. You're only other option is a USB mic like the Blue Snowball.

Almost anything will sound better than an emulated output.

Yes. There are several options for floor stands. I have some old desk mike stands that I bought from Radio Shack years ago. These have a heavy cast base, with a 4" section of threaded pipe that accepts the mike mount. These work fairly well, as long as the speaker isn't too far above the floor. I also have some boom mike stands, which I also use. These let you aim the mic at a more specific spot on the cone for the perfect sound.

I don't let the mike touch the speaker grill. Any movement of the grill will cause noises to be induced into the mike. For close miking, I usually back about a 1/2" away from the grill. Some amps have removable grills, which allow you get right up on the cone.

Different areas of the cone will yield different tones. Experiment.

What kind of venues do you play? If they have a PA, chances are they have mics too and you won't need to provide one. This isn't always the case though...and I always keep a SM57 in my case just in case I need it. But to answer your question about how to mic your setup. You only really need to mic one speaker. It's going to sound tons better than the emulated output. The extension cab will give you a fuller stage sound, but really only one speaker needs to go out to the soundboard (unless of course you're mixing speakers/cabs...but then you'd need 2 mics ) Mic positions are a different story entirely...and that's based entirely off the amp and the tone you're looking to get from the speaker.

A friend of mine seems to have good luck with a Shure PG-57, it's about half the cost of a SM-57...Just sayen.
