Overflow Design question...

I'm trying to build this custom tank and I'd like to design it sketchup before I start building. Right now I'm designing the overflow and would like to use the Bean Animal overflow.

My question is, how high or low on the glass do I mount the pipes?

This is my design so far...

I'm assuming the best place would be so the emergency pipe (upturned elbow) is just barely below the wall in the overflow box? I'm assuming if you mounted them lower on the side that you'd potentially get the noise of water flowing over the wall.

So basically, where is the "prime" location for low noise, safety, anti-flooding?
