When an OBEL is properly executed, there shouldn't be any noticeable drop when engaged like that. The EQ as a compensating boost sounds like a band-aid. Can you describe your entire OBEL setup, pedals, pot values, etc.??

I say CUT on the 10 hz sliders then, if needed, boost with the volume
An ez has a gain stage for each HZ slider that is used if you boost. So say if you use all 11 you'd introduce 11 add'l gain stages in to your signal chain!!!

It seems that when Jerry used those two EQ pedals, they shared the fx router patch with the accompanying boss overdrive pedal so that when he kicked on the drive pedal, the EQ came on with it. The bonus there is that the EQ helped refine and tweak the distortion. My only argument is to leave that kind of stuff out of the "clean", non-effects signal path. Use them all day long in the FX chain.
