Position the mic about 1" from the center of the speaker. The mic cable will run to a mixer then to the PA which will then run to the PA speakers and monitors (if needed).
#3
if its a 12" speaker, have the mic head 1"-4" away from the grille. Take the mic and angle it somewhere between 20-30 degrees off axis. Then move it 1"-3" off the center of the cone.
Ibanez -> Peavey -> Eardrums

Apparently I'm on some list of people to listen to..?

Really doesnt matter, as far as I'm concerned. I usually mic the top left (facing the cab). Works good for me.
