    There’s a couple issues I would address if I were you.  FIrst I don’t think you ahve properly addressed Baffle Step.  Baffle step should start significantly lower in frequency.  THis all depends on the size of the baffle.  CHeck out this video, it may help you:

    Next, it is always wise to pay attention to cone breakup. The circled what appears to be part of cone breakup.  You should try to tame that from your response better if you can.  

     This area will most likely be audible and will most likely lead to unwanted distortion.  Without measuring the speaker on hand, I can’t say for sure.  But anytime you se big peakes like that ina woofer, it is best to try not to have them affect the system response. 

    Better speakers can help with crossovers.  The hope always is the better the speaer, the easier it is to work with.  But that is not always the case.
