YMMV, but I know older factory head-units don't have pre-amp outputs. If it hooks, radio awesome. You also asked for where to splice: I'm assuming that's for if your factory doesn't have pre-amps. However you said amp amp has high level amp, if that's the case then there I hook splice close to where the amp is hook to go, this will minimize or eliminate more splices.
Typically the connectors that come with amps for high level input don't have a lot of wire on them see belowso you'll have to splice close to the factory, and since you're running all new wire you can run wire straight from your HU right up to the amp and splice there. So I would have to use high-level inputs for those. However the door-subwoofers and radio subwoofers are powered by their own amps and the head-unit sends a low-level input to them. For these I plan to use the low-level setting on the amp to capture this cleaner signal.
