Attached the MDAT file (please rename the suffix !!!). How to apply the smoothing filter? The measurement was taken in 4m distance from the speakers in listening position in the triangle.

Here you can here an example -->

Ok, I got it, there was of course a gap.

If we draw a very rough approximation of the standard -10dB in-room response line to your graph, we get:

So, you do have some dips and dramatic treble roll-off above 10KHz where the tweeter beams. Batman has begun to take shape!

You can add some of the lost treble back by toeing the speakers in more, but you will probably also see treble lift above maybe 4KHz.

Import the attached target curve and overlay it with your measurements to get an idea of an ideal result vs. what you have measured.

Hello, can you please post how to set the B&W 607 S2 Anniversary Edition EQ correction in Izotope Ozone 9 or Apogee ModEQ6 or FabFilter Pro-Q3 or can you recommend an EQ plugin and its correct settings.

Don't know which is which, but the ones placed outboards, without grills, yellow woofers, sound a bit plastic to me, the kick sounding first at 00:04 and then again at 02:09 is unbearable as perceived as coming out of a little child instrument. On the contrary, at 03:39 and 04:42 is heard as the real thing when played by the other pair.
