The system at TU Berlin is 105 pannels. Each pannel is fed 8 channels.
Each channel has 3 small drivers and groups of 4 channels are mixed
down to 2 larger low frequency drivers. So:
105 * ( (8*3) + 2) = 2730 total loudspeakers.
You can see most of the room here:
There was a photo there of the whole room before (several panoramics
stitched together.) Not sure if it's still up somewhere for viewing.
