At least (i.e., delay the HF channel).  Perhaps more like 5.2 or 5.3 ms.

More zoomed out. Sorry to be so slow/dense, thanks for you patience.

If you had a tweeter, it looks like it is lagging the midrange (and down about 20-30 dB), so you need to put ~5.9 ms delay on the midrange channel, and 5.3 ms on the tweeter channel.

With the above corrections. Better, though not sure how to interpret the bottom zig zag.

Recommend toggling the vertical frequency axis to show logarithmic frequency, then you'll be able to see the response below 1 kHz (and also up to 20 kHz if you're "Limits" are set correctly).

By the way, it now looks like 5.3 ms delay is a bit too much, maybe by 0.5 ms on the midrange and tweeter channels, judging from the bottom of your last spectrogram posted. The dotted line needs to smoothly bend away from the vertical axis from the midrange to bass--and if you play with it a while, you'll also see that the big spikes in the group delay plot will significantly decrease (which is good, because those group delay spikes are audible).

What is this telling me?

Can you tell me what drivers/horns are playing and where you've set the crossovers? It looks like you're crossing over to something at 100-200 Hz that's lagging the bass bin by 7 ms.

 

It would be really nice to see the vertical scale open up so you can see 10 Hz to 20 kHz.

Here is a composite of the spectrogram that I posted earlier, the controls dialog and the limits dialog open so you can check the settings and correct them to show the same limits, etc.:

The screen shot function is on the upper left hand corner that looks like a camera and is annotated by "capture".  You can set the size of the captured window in that dialog box that pops up.  For spectrograms, I recommend ~1200 pixels image width.

The bass horn is a quarter pie with an Eminence 15c driver (60-600 HZ), JBL 2360 with EV DH1A drivers (600-6000 HZ), QSC horns with Dayton drivers (6000-20000 HZ).

I also wonder if the odd readings on the bass bin could be from the Integra pre/pro I use. It switches output on, with an audible mechanical click from the unit,  when it detects a signal. There is a slight delay, maybe affecting the beginning of the sweep?

I spent several hours today playing test tones and measuring with REW. After getting the LR channels sounding superb with the Xilica I decided to tackle the other channels in my HT. I am using a pair of Ashly 3.24cl units which are not nearly as user friendly or capable but having learned A LOT over the last day the results are impressive. Speakers have location-ally vanished.   Everything is super clean, music and film sound awesome!

Many, many thanks to Chris A for sharing his knowledge. I owe you a beer or 3 for sure.
