Default zen v2 current source behaviour into dead short

How will a zen v2 behave into a dead short?
I know the constant current source on the earlier zens should be okay, but how about this one?

Actually, any dumbed down explanations of it's behaviour in general would be okay. I'm afraid I don't quite understand it yet

The answer is nothing. You can run it that way all
day long, primarily because the peak output is limited
to twice the bias AND it is capacitively coupled.

Great. I will be building some speakers soon, and it's nice to know i can fool with the drivers and not have to worry about shorting the outputs while measuring parameters.
