Please re-scale your graph for a 15-200 Hz horizontal and 45-105 dB vertical axis. You can do that by clicking on the "Graph Limits" icon in the upper right corner.

Should I apply a house curve? Is my boosting okay, given the graphs to show the result? Both amps are at only 1/2 volume, so headroom should be okay?
Any equalizing comes at the expense of headroom. Whether or not you have enough left - you'll find that out once you start using the system. The tell-tale sign will be nasty noises from the sub drivers as they bottom out; however, some powered subs have built-in limiters to prevent this. In that case, you'll notice that bass levels no longer increase in volume with the rest of the system.

Thanks for the info. I guess what I'm asking is this. Once I load the calibration file and apply windows, I will likely start over. What type of curve am I after? Should I follow the original blue target line or the black SPL calibration line? Does this mean that there is already a house curve built into my "after" graph (since I didn't use the .cal file)?
The blue line is the Target Curve – that’s the one you’re concerned about. It appears that your house curve has been added to the Target, so you’re in business. Once you load the mic calibration file, your graphs will be correct, even the previous ones, provided you saved them.
