I also looked at the output meters in the 2x4 software while running bass heavy scenes at reference and they never came close to clipping - hit the yellow a couple times but mostly played in the upper green area. The highest they got was about here, and that was at the peak moments.
Is the spec. 2V peak or 2V RMS. What are you using to measure it? When you are measuring 1.9 volts how are you measuring it??? If you're using an oscilloscope then you should be able to determine if its under the 2 V spec., either peak or RMS. If you're measuring 1.9 volts with a voltmeter then I suspect the peaks may well be over a 2 V peak spec.
