I neglected to test these, but in general eq controls affect narrower bands of notes than a bass or table control will. In filter terms the tone controls are low-Q and the eq controls are higher-Q. I know from my listening that the bass control in these systems affects lower bass notes than the 100 slider does, that's why I turned the bass up and then the 100 slider down to tame the midbass some.
High q can be thought of as having a higher aspect ratio and lower q can be thought of as having a lower aspect ratio, like a tire.
