I implemented and tested that feature some two years ago, but never got around to releasing it. I think that it will decode the pulse stream directly. Actually, you may get better results by feeding the WAV file through TAPir and passing the .tap file (pulse stream) to c2n. But there may have been a reason why TAPir would not work on tapes containing phase changes (half-waves), as in the Commodore 16 .tap format and in the native format of the Tangerine Oric-1 or the KIM-1. Looking at the source code, c2n processes full-waves internally. Then the only reason not to use an external program like TAPir would be if one did not have enough storage for the .tap or .wav file and chose to sample the tape in real-time.
