Why mix speakers?
You can mix speakers to achieve just the tonal blend you want. The possibilities here are endless - here's a basic primer to get the ball rolling.

Three simple rules
1) Match impedances (ohms)
All speakers in the same box should have the same impedance.
2) Power handling
As a rule of thumb, in a 2×12 cab, max power is 2x lowest rated speaker and in a 4×12, it's 4x lowest rated speaker.
3) Sensitivity matching
For best performance, speakers should have less than 3dB difference in sensitivity.
