Cisco 1532i throughput questions

Hi Experts

Question regarding Cisco 1532i throughput on a 2 site bridge mode connection. With this setup, I am only seeing a maximum of 9to10MB/s file transfer speeds from the remote side to a host on the root side and I think it should be faster.

Here is Root Bridge:

I only have the 5GHz enabled, and I read about turning on the above 40 MHz Channel Width - that option is only on the root bridge ap and not the non-root-bridge - does this equal a problem if turned on the root and not non-root as well?
Will it help?
Should I enable the 2.4 GHz radios as well?

Thanks for looking over the configs.
