You are talking some other amp. My output devices deliberately never turn off.
Schottkys can turn off, but they aren't output devices, only square law shapers...
There is no class C anywhere within a slightly underbiased Schottky crossing.
Underbias will force both halves to ride an ideal curve through said crossing.

Somehow you have missed the entire point why quiescent should bypass the
load. That no misbehaving load event can ever shut down devices that glitch.

My topology has its own set of technical difficulties, sure. But the problem you
just illustrated thankfully isn't one of them.

I was not talking about your amp, certainly isn't a critique of your design, we were talking about different issues, you stated correctly about the independence of quiescent current/load current in general, I was talking of a potential problem that may arise within the cross over region (EF outputs) when the quiescent current is underbiased (deep Class B) at real load condition, a transient, regardless the design.

how about this?
