This is not a string that you pull down. You have to fit the shape of a parametric filter to what you want to change. Here is the relative response:We are back again to the issue of the arbitrary placement of the response v. The target curve. The practical implication is that the EQ used raises several frequencies when probably would be better to pull down upper bass and peak at 3k instead.
Taking that broad, odd-shaped hill between 100 and 1 kHz would require fair bit of work. And that is critical work given the importance of that region audibly. In contrast, a shelving filter in sub-bass is not as critical and can make a decent match to that region.
As I have explained a number of times, this is a zero sum gain. Boosting the entire range so that you can then pull a few areas down has already increased distortion/reduced headroom. It is not free to boost things across the full frequency range.
Also, if you boost the response, to get different point to match, then that impacts the sensitivity measurements.
