Another approach might be to try overcoupling one or more of the i.f.
transformers.  This might be accomplished by physically moving the 
and secondary coils closer to each other, if their mechanical 
permits.  Overcoupled tuned circuits tend to have a broader bandwidth 
with a
dip in the middle of the passband.  Combine this with a more loosely 
stage with a narrower peak that coincides with the dip, and the sum 
would be a broader and flatter passband with steeper skirts.
