Its hard to generalize on this - I have been in meeting rooms of >50 at 802
meetings before now where if we hadn't had a microphone we would not have
been able to conduct business doe to other ambient noise pollution sources.
Certainly needed for >100; sometimes may be needed for smaller meetings too.

I'd like to volunteer everyone else to participate ;-)
Seriously - does this really need a subcommittee?? We seem to be able to
conjure up new projectors at the drop of a hat; does this need to be any
harder to resolve?
Specific recommendation: Provide floor mics as a matter of course for
meetings >100 attendees. Have the flexibility to provide them in
circumstances where it is obvious that they are needed as a consequence of
the environment of the meeting (noise sources, shape of room, ...etc).
