Default How to attach box speakers to T-top tubing?

I got fed up with the sound quality of speakers at ankle level, so I ordered some good Polk Audio box speakers. I've got a soft top with ebox, and the only place for speakers is attached to the T-top tubing. But how would you secure the flat speaker brackets to the tubing? I'm thinking of some sort of pipe hangers or hose clamps maybe. I can't find anything made for this purpose, but someone must have done it before. Thanks for any suggestions.

Check Stryker the T-top maker - they make brackets for tubing. http://www.strykerttops.com/ProductD...ductCode=SA800

Those are really nice! I use a couple of car lamp brackets off eBay to mount GoPros on my tower. They are not as good looking as these though!

The Strykers are nice, but they'd cost more than the speakers, and you'd still have to drill and tap for a bolt. Found these at Home Depot already threaded for a 3/8" bolt. Galvanized, but I painted them and replaced the screws with stainless. The 1.5" size mounted perfectly on the 1-7/8 o.d. T-top tubing, using a strip of bike innertube under each. We'll see how they last.
