Default Those big GE amps

Does anyone know what output devices those monster GE amps used.

FYI the amps were made in the 80's, had 64 output devices, amps were mono. 20 KW into 4 ohm load, that's right 20,000 watts. The output was designed my Crown and the driver boards by GE. I have no dilussions of making one of these, I'm just wondering how it was made. They are supposedly stable into < 1/4 ohm.

These were probably gradient coil driver amps for MR imaging applications. Good luck finding specs. I work at GE and tried to get spec for a few of these we have lying around, but no dice.
