4Front EQ Vs. Winamp Standard EQ

I have some basic questions about 4Front and Winamp Standard EQ:

1) Is is true that when user unchecks "Fast Layer 3 EQ" option the EQ used will be 4Front and not Winamp Standard EQ?

2) If the above is true, what about the frequencies? Winamp Standard EQ uses:
60, 170, 310, 600, 1k, 3k, 6k, 12k, 14k, 16k
and 4Front EQ uses:
31, 62, 125, 250, 500, 1k, 2k, 4k, 8k, 16k

3) If the frequencies are different, the skins are wrong, since they show Standard EQ frequencies.

4) What about the presets? If they were created for the Standard EQ (and its frequencies) I think they will sound no good when 4Front is used.

5) In 4Front web site I can read: Equalizer bands have dynamic range of -20dB...+20dB (standard winamp equalizer has only -6dB...+6dB). If it's true there are more skin problems. Also, I thought Standard EQ had dynamic range of -12...+12db.

6) I have checked/unchecked the option "Fast Layer 3 EQ" and can't hear any difference. Is there any test I could do and really hear some difference?

Thanks for your patience.
Thanks for Winamp 5.5. It's great!!!!!
