Speakers and frequencies?

  1. How come for live needs, bass players with low B/F#/etc need 15" or 18" subs, yet with headphones and stereo speakers I can hear the notes fine? When I play a 5 string through my amp (with a 15 in it) it still sounds kind odd. But on a recording, it sounds fine. What's up with that?
