    Simply put, an absorber designed to specifically trap low frequency sound waves and keep them from bouncing around your room muddying things up. They come in various shapes and sizes. Here's a couple of links for some ideas:

    Sarah,

    Besides the bass traps plans Alex mentioned (thanks Alex), also see my Acoustics FAQ, 10th article in the list here:

    www.ethanwiner.com/articles.html

    It goes into greater details about the issues, and shows other simpler ways to achieve good low frequency absorption.
