    Would mounting speakers like this in a guitar cab ( let's say the speakers are the same and not different as in the pic) have any major sound difference, positive or negative ? I'm asking about the way these are positioned...sort of 45* in the cab.

    That is a smaller than typical 212 cab, which is why the speakers are mounted that way. For a bigger cab with side-by-side speaker mounting vs. a slanted mounting, I would think that the sound difference wouldn't be major and that the bigger difference would be more down to listening position of the cab.

    .

    Get a cheap practice amp, one of those 8inch speaker Squier or Fender G-10 deals, and play it sitting on the floor, then on a stool, a chair, a table. Listen to how the tone changes.
    The little amp is not chewing your ankles off.

    Biggest tone shift would come from a closed/open backed cabinet. Why the small speaker practice amps are always closed backed -- to get more bass.

    If you want to note a bigger difference than how those are positioned in the cab, walk across the room parallel to the front of the cab while playing. Then, stand the cab on end and do the same thing.
