Good system?

Alright, so I was talking to one of the car audio guys over at the best buy i work at and i was asking what he would recommend i get for my car. he started off tellin me one system then when i told him i listened to only rock he suggested this and im wondering what anybody who knows much about audio systems has to say:
2x 6.5's front speakers (infinity kappas)
2x 6x9 rear speakers (infinity kappas)
1x Alpine 4/3/2 4 Channel amp- F300
1x Alpine m500 mono amp
2x Kenwood 12" subs w3012
Quest ported box
Dual 4awg amp kit
1 set twisted pair rca cable

I dont know a ton of car audio but he said this would be a great kit and with my discount would be under $500. any good?
ANd would the radio i got in there still be good cuz i got my xm thats standard in there

hardest part would to be install door speakers to me. only for the fact idk how to take off the door panels. the rear deck is fairly easy to take off. and if those subs are dual voice coil make sure you wire them up right

Rockford Fosgate® - Woofer WiringWizard

use the bottom option for wiring the subs up correctly. that will deliver 300 watts RMS to the subs and should be just right for them.

yeah each could take about 500, but you can't run 500 watts off of that amp because you have two 4ohm subs. you can only wire those subs in 1ohm *which your amp can't handle* or 2ohm.
