Home recording studio with recording booths

I was wondering about wiring up the booths from the 'engineering'/'recording' room. At the moment we are thinking about putting the mics and cans in the booths. But do you think we should go through the ceiling or through the walls? Or does it matter too much? Is there a better way? Pitfalls to consider?
I also want to thank you all for your help earlier this year.

I guess you can use them through the ceiling too, but it'd be a bit hard to reach.
It looks like Pro Co makes all sorts of 1/4" and XLR wall plates. Never used them, myself, so I'm not sure of the details of using them, or any potential pitfalls. You could just probably seal the inner workings with that "Good Stuff" insulating foam that you'd use to insulate electrical switches/outlets on exterior walls of your home.

tadpui suggested isnt bad but you'll only get 2 channels with it. I know they come in more than that but its a lot of work to put em in. and with the snake you only have to drill one hole lol.
