Boss GT-10 / GT-8: Fat sounding guitar tone without the tone modify resonator effect

In Mixer I explained how to use the resonator effect to get a better low end from the thin sounding preamp models of the Boss GT-8 / GT-10. The "fat sound" trick was to use the tone modify effect with the resonator and custom speakers. 

The problem is that you waste a valuable FX1/2 effect! And actually the resonator only changes the sound of your guitar amp combination. It must be possible to use the EQ instead of the tone modify resonator.

My first "fat sound" attempts failed completly. I wasn't able to replace the resonator with the EQ with my ears. Thereon I considered to measure the frequency response of the resonator. Then I switched off the resonator activated the EQ and adjusted it as exactly as possible to the measured frequency response curve.

Et voilà, it's approximatly possible!

The curves look a bit different but the two patches sound similar.

As an example I used my Heavy Rock Patch with the 5150 model

Normally the resonator is only used to get a fat sound. With my EQ settings you can get this fat sound without wasting the FX1 block.

I read that the resonator has several peaks which you cannot get from an eq?
