2009 gt sound system upgrade

I'm looking to upgrade my sound system from the shaker 500. My budget is around $1200. For head unit I'm looking at alpine cda-117 or kenwood excelon x996. I would like to replace the 2 door speakers and 2 rear speakers for now as well.

Will the stock door subwoofers work with an aftermarket HU? Will I be able to hook up the existing siriusxm to the aftermarket HU that is siriusxm ready?

Any suggestions for a good HU and speakers? (prefer single din) Also might get the shelby kicker subwoofer, would those work off the HU without an amp?

Do you think getting an amp is a good idea?

You can use the factory subs in the door with an aftermarket HU, there is an adapter that you have to get though. Do a search here, tons of info on this exact topic.

Ordered the Alpine CDE-HD138BT since it had the features I was looking for: good sound, usb input, siriusxm ready, hd radio, plus blutooth and pandora. Also ordered 4 JL Audio C2-570x speakers, siriusxm SXV200v1 tuner since the factory sirius tuner doesn't work with aftermarket HU apparently, door panel clip removal tool, 4 speaker harnesses, 2 foam baffles, and a mastersheet from crutchfield.

No amp or subwoofers for now. Total cost about $510
