I would lift the output wires and attach a 200 or 300 ohm load
resistor then check the voltage. I'm assuming these are smps transformers.
Why 200 or 300 ohm, I don't know just load it to at least half
of the rated output power. How are you to know what the rated
power is supposed to be? Don't know just try a 200 or 300 ohm
resistor. Make sure the resistor has the proper wattage.
Also you could swap the transformers from channel to channel
and see if the problem follows the transformer.
I suspect the transformer because you say--

same goes in however I only get about 2v AC out" <
If the output of the tranformer was overloaded by a bad amplifier,
I think the input would be low, and you say it's the same.
