Distortion is due to HU equiliser and you can get rid of it by coding the HU to hi-fi.
It is not amp over powering it, but its the equiliser.

Give it a go, but I can tell you SWS-8s are hungry subs and eats the power of the amp. I don't see that they will work great with alpine amp due to power discrepencies.
All the best.
