Suppose the quiescent current is 1A as in your example. That current can go up, at the limit of class A, to 2A, because at that point the 'other' output side goes to zero current. Alternatively, if the 'other' output side goes to the 2A, then 'this' output side goes to zero. Therefor, each output side can go from zero to 2A, so that's the peak output voltage. Didn't hurt, did it? jan __________________ Music is dither to the brain; lets me think below the usual chaos - me Linear Audio Vol 13 is out! Check out my Autoranger and SilentSwitcher
