if there is nothing in the manual that says you can put it @ 2 ohms mono, then i wouldn't risk it.

The larger PC amps are very regulated. It does very closely to what it says, at 700x2 2ohms stereo or 1400x1 bridged mono 4ohm. This being the case, it is not stable at 2ohm mono- so I wouldn't plan to run it that way.

The new PC amps are not stable into 2 ohm mono. It will fry your amp!

you'd figure with all the cooling fans in it and vents on both sides, and protection mode, it would be a little safe??

of course, if you bridge amp. into load 2ohm total power 2800 but may be correct BIG K, is not stable.

Hold up.. my friend runs a PC2350 mono bridged at 2.66 ohms without a single problem. Beware it has some HUGE power requirements and if your current isn't right up there it would not be stable.

I wouldn't really recommend running the PC2350 at 2 ohms mono .. better off coming up with a different setup like you mentioned.

See I was thinking of running two kicker solo 15's, But to get the most power out of them I was going to get two 4 ohm woofers and rum them parallel down to two ohms mono, If its not safe ill just get two ohm woofers and run them stereo??

Just run 2 of the Solo 15's the 8 ohm series. That will solve all of your problems
