should i get 2 straight cabs or a slant and a straight cab? is there any difference in sound?

Do you really need a pair of 4x12s? What amp are you currently using, and will you be playing any gigs? To be honest, a single 4x12 would be plenty, and a 2x12 would be more practical and allow you to get something of higher quality.

There is a slight difference in sound, though this isn't noticeable unless you are adept at picking out intricate details in the sound of a certain amplifier...the speakers themselves would have more to do with the tone I'd imagine.

I personally prefer visually a slanted on top of a straight cab, which is what I would have...but then it's personal preference really isn't it. You don't mic up every speaker anyway, so you can have the best of both worlds for speaker sounds through the PA with a slanted on top of a straight.

I just have a slanted cab for my half stack atm...not going to get a straight cab to put below it at the moment because a) another matching Hughes & Kettner cab would be another £750 ish, and b) I'm not sure it would fit in my mom's car with the other cab and all my gear to take to gigs lol

Well that means you don't need a stack?

Also what 4x12 cabs will you buy?

Well the Windsor cabs aren't that good. Neither is that Marshall cab..
Instead get ONE Marshall 1960 AV or 1960X cab. Beats them by FAR!

But, if your going to get 2 4x12, get a Marshall 1960A and 1960BV. Then swap 2 of the speakers around

The slanted cab will project sound in different directions. Your tone is much different standing right in front of your speakers than standing a few feet to the side. The highs will scream at you when in direct line. I like 4X12s (I have a Marshall 1960B), but I use a pair of 2X12s a lot because they disperse sound better when angled differently, & I can move the small cabs easily to get the tone I want in every part of a room. Also, lugging around 4X12s is a major pain in the ass.
I'm too old for that crap.
