EQ vs Lo/Hi pass Filters-whats the difference?

Anyone care to briefly educ-ma-kate me on the differences between the two.How close an I get away with tweaking a good parametric EQ to handle the job of a LO/HI pass system? Also, any input on ADM brand filters?

They are all filters (EQ).

The hi/low pass EQs allow you to roll off the hi/low end completely to a predetermined frequency.

Go to the Soundcraft website. Download one of the console manuals and look
for the EQ/Filter section. There you´ll find nice diagrams which explain all
the different filters to you.
Having a look at these diagrams will surely help to fully understand the
difference between (as an example) a lowcut filter and a low shelving filter.
