I could, couldn't I? Feed it from the midpoint of the two amps and drive each half the distance? Or drive just one the full difference? Interesting.

All OCL amps have a DC offset.

For audio amplification we normally roll-off subsonic gain to unity, so "gain resistor match" is completely off the table.

I won't touch the idea of "bridging bad", except to point out two extremes:

Load offset doubles. But power output has quadrupled, meaning you probably have hefty woofers which will ignore tiny or 2X tiny offset.

Load offset *cancels*. This can happen (with good tracking even) in a monolithic dual.
