Default Which of the (3) routes is best?

so my alpine double din just broke and I have just replaced it with a pioneer. The problem is that it only has one set of rca preouts in the back and I am running two amps, one for subs and one for mids and highs.. As far as sound quality which route is best
A) rca y splitter in the back of the head unit because I already have my rca's ran
B) a line output converter for one of the rca's .... If so should I use it for the mono subwoofer amplifier or should I use it for my mids and highs?
C) or should I just use the preouts on one of my amplifiers, because both of my amps have them? And if so should I hook up the sub amp first and then use its line out preouts to connect to the amp for my mids n highs? Or should I use my mids and highs amp first then line out to the mono amp? E

Either route would work no problem because I have all wires already ran and have some LOC's laying around I can easily hookup... So let me know what you think! Unfortunately when I tried looking it up it seems that every forum about this subject is just one big argument over who is right or wrong over these three routes ha...Thx for reading

C is what I would do, using the crossovers on the amps. Use the output on the mids and highs amp to the mono amp input.

I would probably just split the signal from the headunit using Y splitters. You can do that in the back by the amps so you don't have to run another RCA. Signal loss due to the split is negligible; on the order of a couple millivolts.

If you don't want to buy splitters I would do option C which is just as good if the preamp in/out is just a parallel connection.
