Although we were using smaller Roland studio monitors, we created the
octophonic space with PVC stands that could be made in several heights and
quickly rearranged. They were inexpensive and simple to build, and did not
damage the speakers. This was 1-inch PVC, but larger PVC would be very
strong and safe, and you could use bungees or equipment straps for
additional security. (We were going to use straps, but these speakers were
stable without them.) Here's a pix:
