That looks pretty bad. You might try some room correction software like Dirac or others.

Yeah, I'm now just realizing that about ARC. So if your speakers and room do bad things with the FR from 5kHz-20kHz, you're screwed unless you manually EQ.

Audyssey does have the ability to "tweak". All you have to do is copy the Audyssey curve and then use manual EQ to tweak all you want.

There are also 3 automatic "tweaks".

ARC seems to do a good job with flattening out the frequency response.

Dirac seems to flatten out the FR below 200Hz, but doesn't seem to do that much beyond that.

If IMAX theaters felt the same as you, they probably would be using Room-Perfect too. :D
