Normal that it sounds bad when raising that valley of 115 Hz with + 11 dB.
Equalizing is not raising or lowering a specific frequency, but you don't have to be afraid to get down to it.
You will see that looking for information is very easy.
For now, I advise you not to raise the valleys you may have from 300-400 Hz down.
more than + 3 dB to start and from 400-500 Hz and above do not put filters with a narrow Q.
If you put narrow-Q filters in the mid-zone, you will most likely be over-equalizing.
To finish a flat target if it is not well applied it can sound very bad vs what we could have before.

After a lot of listening and measurements I ended with this:
It sounds amazing. Very controlled bass and fun, yet very detailed and smooth sounds. Im loving the R7s.
Bass sounds incredible good.

Thank you for your sharing nice procedures on Fq tuning.

BTW, have you measured and tuned precision (0.1 msec level) time alignment (at your listening position) over all the SP drivers?

At least in my setup, it greatly contributes to the almost perfect disappearance of SPs as summarized here.

I only had the umik1 for 2 days, its a really nice tool.
I havent do anything to the tine alignment, but in the future i will definly take a look at that post if i got the umik1 again
Thank you

I understood well.

In any way, I found it is really interesting that your best tuned Fq response and my best tuned response in my setup have very similar "tendencies" other than a little bit of upward slope over about 7 kHz in my case compensating my age dependent slight hearing decline; please refer to my post here regarding the slight upward slope in high Fq zone.

Yes!
One of my goal was try that kind of tuning, sound very good in my opinion, very lifelike
That gentle slope in the FR sounds good
Thanks i'll take a look
