Where did it come from? I don't know the origin; I just took the
picture at a customer's house. From the comments recently about being able
and not being able to get a T2X into a BX3 section, apparently there are
different iterations of the BX design.
BTW, the top section of your HDBX-48 is a BX3; the sections in the photo
are BX2 or BX1. Let's say that the tower in the photo is "BX-like". The
purpose of the photo was to illustrate the gap (whatever it is) between the
X-braces. Maybe the spacing is exaggerated but my point is still the same.
