This graph doesn't mean anything, and it means even less when you don't tell us what it is. Is this a microphone at mix position with both speakers outputting pink noise? What's the software/mic/pre/converter? What are your parameters for this measurement? Is this peak/rms? Is there a window, cumulative, or is this a snap of an instantaneous measurement?

I'm not a huge fan of frequency plots (no equalizers involved here) but if you want it to tell you anything...

Have you taken multiple measurements in different positions?
Have you tried doing one speaker at a time and comparing?
Have you tried the speakers in different positions?
Have you listened to to the room? using reference CDs and comparing to other rooms, headphones, whatever you know best?

Not trying to be negative but this is like writing a number on a piece of paper, and asking how close it is to the answer without us knowing what the question is.

Measurements can be helpful, especially if you're trying to isolate an issue, but random plots aren't going to tell you anything other than however this measurement was taken results in a dip @ 70, 120, and 2k, and peaks @ 40and 140. These could be room modes, or it could be a million other things.
