My best guess would be dissasembling them and placing them onto separate boxes. You may find the right box sizes on http://www.uline.com

I had a pair of Duo's shipped to me from a dealer in the Midwest (I am in Ca.)..they did not have the original boxes and used what they had in the store..shipped the horns and bass modules in separate heavy cardboard boxes stuffed with those hideous styrofoam balls...that fly out everywhere when you open the boxes...BUT...it worked....speakers were totally undamaged and worked (and still work) flawlessly...I was very nervous for a few days waiting..they used a private shipping company and they were delivered on a palette.
Well, rack up another vote for C&F. They custom built the crates, shrinkwrapped the speakers to my specifications, bubble wrapped them, then custom cut dense shipping foam material insulating the crate interior from the speakers. When I popped the top to the crate I couldn't believe how uniform the dense foam was cut to fit perfectly for the speaker. It was like a mold. Very impressive work.
They're independent outfits in most major cities, but the C&F facility I recently used near Anaheim, CA was professional, competitively priced, shipped in a timely fashion. I could not have been happier. You definitely want to do as I did by attaching those speakers in individual crates to their own pallet. That's the best chance you have of having them arrive undamaged. Barring an errant fork lift driver really doin' a number on them, they'll arrive just as they were when they were packaged. Document the entire packaging process with photographs. Highly recommended. Good luck!
