This chart shows has an 11 - 12 db spike between 3 - 5 Khz.

The previous chart (which we have since removed) showed 11 db suck out between 4 - 5 Khz.

That is the exact opposite; a difference of at least 22 dbs within the same range.

Since you stated that "dip in the 3-4 kHz area is a real bliss to the human ears..." What effect does that upward swing have on the human ears?
Its amazing how you want Carver Amazing 60 inches dipole ribbon have a dip in the same freq area than a few grams paper cone FR in a BR box.
Its amazing how you dont see the various depressions Amazing have.

There is nothing in this discussion that is helpful to someone seeking an answer to how various Omega products compare to each other in sound.

Anyone wanting to find such information can get many indicators simply by searching the Omega forum.
Frequency response graphs are next to useless unless more information about testing environment is
provided as well as the sensitivity of the graph gradiations are listed.

Couldn't agree more. The best "graph" is your ears used in your listening environment. Using this graph I've determined the Omega speakers in my listening room are excellent.

By extension, just because a speaker measures flat doesn't necessarily mean that it sounds good.  One interesting experiment would be to listen to a system that sound great to you and then measure the frequency response in the room.  You may find you like a little unevenness or emphasis in some frequency ranges.
