Waves Q-Clone vs SPL Track One, can you spot the real one?

Okay, I tried out Q-Clone and I have to say that I really like it. Usually when I use digital EQ's they crap out and sound like s**t on extreme boosts like +10dB, so what I did was that I sent this clip to the SPL Track One channel strip and recorded it, then I sent it thru the Waves Q-Clone and recorded the result. I boosted 240hz to the max, 10khz almost to the max and high shelf to the max. The clip loops three times, first in the clip there is the original unprocessed signal, then either SPL Track One or the Q-Clone, followed by the other one. But which one is first?

The curve looked like this btw:

I think the first plugin sounds warmer at the 240 boost without sounding too boomy. I honestly don't know either plugin well enough to guess which is which, but I like the first one (2nd clip out of the three played) better.

I think this whole argument is moot though because the original audio clip sounds awful.
