Actually, I don't know for sure how it's implemented. They may have separate sound streams for each window. Moreover, this was a few years ago (I left in 1995), and there may have been changes since then. It would certainly be a lot easier to use individual speakers fed by electrical wiring, than pumping a lot of air around from a central location.
