possible to only run 2 channels on a 4 channel amp?

is it possible to only run 2 channels on a 4 channel amp?

amp is a RF p450.4

was thinking of removing rear channels inputs and ouputs to see how it sounds.

Do i need to provide either input or output or a minimal load to do it safely?

thanks in advance
Glen

absolutely no problem...any 2 channels on that amp can run safely as low as 2 ohms unbridged. you may also want to try bridging to 2channels and doubling power into those two channels...just beware that in bridged mode the minimum impedance is 4ohms per channel.
