The Parametric EQ can go a little lower than 75 Hz. Checkout the post here for a user-created Percentage-to-frequency mapping. The interesting stuff is around the middle of the post from Meambobbo and alpernar. Edit: Meh! Forgot the link when I first posted this .... http://line6.com/support/thread/54022
On the engl in the loop thing. There are no monitors built into the POD that can help with this. The easiest way I found, to get comparitive levels, was to use a true bypass box (home made) to flip between the device in the loop and 'nothing' in the loop and compare the two levels.
Use the 'Instrument Output' on the pre-amp as this will run at Instrument/Stompbox level. Make sure that the loop is switched to 'Stomp'.
Another tip is that the Pod HD Loop can sometimes drop a few dB . Try something like:
- Set the POD FX Loop Send and Return Levels to 0dB and Mix to 100%
- Add a Studio EQ just before the FX loop. Boost the gain (only) by somewhere between 6 and 11dB.
How does that work for balance between modelled and 'real' patches now?

You can also temporary switch the pod to another device with level(LED)meter and compare the level or at the mixer in contrast to the direct connection.
Do you have a laptop or so? There is software available to measue.
