If you don't like the way it sounds, experiment with position and angle in relation to the speaker cone. One of my favorite is with the mic perpindicular to and almost touching the grille cloth and centered on the junction between the cone and the outer surround on a V-30. I spent about two days setting up and recording 30 second snippets then changing nothing but mic location. The results were quite surprising.
