Wow, those dips are pretty deep.. about 25 dB..

Do I understand your hint correctly when I guess that if you invert the
mid band and add it at the right level the whole thing would end up more
or less flat? I don't know when the actual processing happens, but I
guess if you invert the mid band you will need to handle that a bit
differently as well. Maybe that's all total bollocks though :)
