This is a beginner's theoretical question. I was looking at the figures on this site: http://www.electronics-tutorials.ws/amplifier/amp_6.html and noticed that the so called "conducting angle" of a class AB amplifier is given this way:
It is said to conduct between 180° and 360°. What I don't understand is that the output signal is coming from two transistors, additive. I see that a single trasistor in the pair does not conduct in the full 360° range. But the amplifier as a whole does conduct at any angle right? The transfer function of the amplifier won't be a straight line (obviously), but I don't see where the signal is clipped. Please help me understand.
UPDATE: here is a graph showing two functions:
f(x) = min(-0.6, sin(x)) g(x) = max(0.6, sin(x))
I believe that the response of the whole amp to a sinusoidal input is something like f(x)+g(x)
