Wrench 04 Vue w/ factory amp question

Hey folks

So CarPlay/Android Auto receivers are finally cheap enough that I may put one in to my old '04 Vue w/ factory amp and subwoofer. I've replaced many car stereos in my day but never one where there is a factory amp involved.

When putting in the new radio, should I actually be splicing the RCA pre-outs into the vehicle-side harness instead of the usual amplified channels on the radio-side harness? i.e. does the stock radio output a pre-amp signal across all channels to the factory amp?

Don't have OnStar or any other fancy factory things besides the amp & sub, and I'd like to keep the sub working if possible.

I've tried searching for a similar question but the search functions on these forums aren't the best.

Thank you!
