Power booster? Do you mean an amp? There is nothing stopping you from adding a sub to an aftermarket HU, even if it doesn't have a sub output. Don't know of any alpine HUs that don't have a sub out though.

If it doesn't had a sub output, then just run the sub off an output off the alpine and use the alpines crossover and EQ to set the sub. While your at it, I would get a real processor. From a quick look that thing is total crap, I doubt it has any more power than your alpine. Can't say anything about the equalizer, but I would bet money they can't come close to an alpine processor. Not to mention you get a lot more than just an equalizer with a processor.

I remember those things. I had a 50 watt Sony "power booster" EQ back in the early 90's. Theyre pretty much worthless as a power source. Set the thing to passive and use it for an EQ but forget about getting more power out of it - its just not capable of any power because its too small. Youre gonna have to get an amp if youre wanting more power.
