GLM eq preferences?

So I just recieved a pair of Genelec 8320A plus a 7350A sub. Experimented a lot with placement, read all Genelec recommendations etc. Semi-treated bedroom (bass traps, GIK monster traps, back wall covered). 

The GLM calibration has done wonders to my low mids but the hi end is too pronounced for my taste. The resulting curve looks quite flat up to 10k but listening at moderate levelse (70 db) some s:es from my reference music almost hurt my ears. 

The Sound Character Profiler basically seems to add a low pass shelf at 1k and 10k. That obviously soften things a bit. There is also of course the possibility to go into the individual eq settings and do anything, but I tend to trust Genelec engineers a bit more than my own bedroom-producer-ears so I don't want to mess too much. Also: that could keep me busy for weeks instead of making music... 

What are your preferences? Do you like to roll of the top end in you monitoring instead of going for a flat curve? Any other experiences?

You can't modify the calibration? Maybe that's for the 8330A and above? I thought I read that it was possible.
