Not really.

As I’m sure you’re aware, you can eq the monitor as a whole via its own peq and/or geq. You can take some low end out and add some treble, but doing so will effectively take the low end out of all the channels in that monitor, (not just the kick, eg your vocals could start sounding too thin,) and add treble to all the channels in that monitor, (not just the vox, eg your kick could sound too clicky.)

You could y-split your sources (in the case of the Qu, you need to do it before the preamps,) and use one channels 1-8 for FOH with their own dynamics and eq that suit FOH, and use ch9-16 for monitors, with different dynamics and eq settings. Obviously this halves your channel count, which may not be acceptable, depending on how many inputs you need.

Another option would be to set the mixes’ tap point to be pre-eq (or post preamp). Of course neither of these options allow you to apply a separate eq to a channel for monitors only, but it does mean your channel eqs will only affect FOH; your channel eq changes won’t be heard by the band.
