For the audiophile, "ambience" is a highly desirable acoustic quality of the listening room where sound seems to hang in the air, to have a low level but sustained presence.  It is developed by coordinating the acoustic compliment in the room with the dispersion pattern of the loudspeaker in such a way that the acoustic signature of the small room is replaced by a new acoustic signature, one which defines a larger, less distinct and more spacious listening room.

The entire treble frequency range is utilized to convert the small room acoustics into a spacious listening environment.  "Ambience" is too easily muted by simple sound panels and acoustical foam.  Special high end acoustics, TubeTraps are designed to attenuate the undesirable buildup of excessive bass while simultaneously redistributing the treble range in patterns that create spacious sounding listening rooms.
