Wetsound 485 setup help!!

Hey guys just got a new to me/older maristar. I has 2 wetsound 485 on the tower that came with a rubicon soundstream 502.
specs= 4ohm stereo 100w x 2
2ohm stereo 250w x 2

I eventually wanna get a syn4 but right now it looks like it will be a couple of month before I can get the funds. Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to wire these up.

Thanks for all your help!

If you have a two channel amplifier driving a pair of 4-ohm speakers there is only one way to wire that up....in stereo with one speaker per each channel for a net 4-ohm load. You can bridge the amp and series the speakers with the same result. You CANNOT bridge the amp and parallel the speakers. So while the speakers will be seriously under-powered as compared to their potential for now, don't over-think it as there is no safe way around it.
