This may explain the dip in the frequency response something over 100 hz .

"the middle" is not the perfect definition to explain where we put the mic but in fact it can explain the 100Hz dip.
We put it at the listener's spot (which in this case may not be the perfect place - it changed after :). I also know the room is not perfect however.

Thank you for your consideration :)
