    Tom, it is straightforward. Consider C24. One end is grounded. the other gets signal voltage from the output of the amp. It feeds through a couple resistors. So the output of the amp swings both...

    I see no reason why not. As a repair it seems clumsy, but for testing it is pretty much the same as using a bench supply.


    Use your meter to see if output devices are shorted.
