Zapco 500M Power

I have ordered a Zapco 500M amp and 2 10" MB Quart PWE 254 subs. The amp is rated at 500w RMS @ 2 Ohm and 800w MAX @ 2 Ohm. The subs are rated at 400w RMS and are DVC 4 Ohm. I had intended on wiring these to 2 Ohm, but because I am kinda new to this stuff I didn't realize that you can't. Would this amp still provide enough power for these subs at 4 Ohms? I looked for specs for this amp at 4 Ohms but could only find for 2 Ohms. If not, would it be better for me to sell this amp and buy a different one, or would it be a good idea to buy another one of these and run one sub on one amp. I was afraid that this might be too much power then. If I should buy a different amp: I would like to sell this one if anyone is interested; and which amp should I buy. I think I would like to stay with Zapco but Im not sure which model would work best.

Zapco 500m=360 watts at 4 ohm. If you wanted to stick with zapco you could probably get another 500m or get a reference 750 which puts out 750 watts at 4 ohms bridged. Otherwise you could probably get into a cheaper one or four ohm stable amp that would work just fine.
