I don't know the right terminology for it, but I would like to know how to redirect sound with the use of walls or other materials. It is like the umbrella used to redirect the camera's flash.

I think you're thinking of a reflector. A parabolic reflector is what is often used to make microphones more directional and increase on-axis gain.

If I'm not mistaken, there are already some topics about sound reflectors, I just don't know exactly where to find them. Concrete or wooden walls reflect sound while curtains and drapes absorb sound. I think there are also types of furniture that reflect or absorb sound.

A parabolic reflector is what I was thinking. Is there a similar device for speakers? For example, I have a 2.1 speaker and I wanted to reflect the sound from the 2 speakers to be redirected at my back ear. Is there such a thing?
