Mounting bracket or band clamp options
« on: November 18, 2021, 12:09:43 PM »

Going to be installing some small 70v speakers in a greenhouse. Theyíll be mounted on 4x4Ē vertical support posts made of galvanized metal. Iíd just as soon not drill into the posts, so am looking at mounting options. Actual speaker havenít been chosen yet so I donít even know yet what speaker bracket type Iíll be using. Just wondering if there is a common bracket or clamp available. There will be several dozen units, so cost is a consideration.
I notice stainless steel band clamps are used by our town to mount signs etc to streetlight posts. Not sure if thatís a suitable option. Speakers will be be a smaller weatherproof enclosed unit....probably about the size of a bookshelf speaker.
Any suggestions?

If the post is hollow the stainless band clamp might crush it. Also not sure they are flexible enough for square vs. the usual round posts.
Guess it depends on how substantial the post is.

I seriously doubt that a band will be able to crush the post. Those are sometimes even filled with concrete. Here is a stainless steel hose type clamp that should work.

No, those posts walls are probably 1/8Ē thick or more. No worries about crushing. Iím friendly with a couple local sign contractors. Iíll check with them. I know they often use bands like what Hal posted. Was just checking to see if there was something different that I hadnít seen.
Thanks guys.

Well, if you Google "square pole sign mounting bracket" you get just about everything available including round pole. If you need something different, it would be no problem for a welding or metal fabrication shop to make your idea up for you. I've gone that route in the past.
