Ok guys, I am finally going to try this.

I bought a 25 ft speaker cable and put a 412 in old of the closets in the cave.

This will take some of the heat off of me blasting my amps so much at home.
The only problem with this setup is the reflections of the bare wall coming right back at the cabinet and at the mic. You have to deaden it with something unless that's the sound you are after.

Isolating a guitar sound by using a Iso-closet or an Iso-cabinet makes a big difference in a small place(like home studios) where you can't crank the amp.
I've got a great result with some amps that got great master volume at moderate volume. But some amps you really must crank, at least past 4) to get the goods going.
The closet is the best choice, but in case you can't use one, an iso-cab also works very good. And in case you have a good eq for tracking(Neve 1073, Chandler Tone Control, API 550-A and Avedis E-27 are my favorites for this), you can get rid of the "boxiness" sound that the iso-cab gives you, and make your guitar sound very pro.
