I have fairly decent sized bookshelf speakers and a 9x16 free standing screen from Carl's made out of EMT.  What is a good way to make brackets to attach the speakers to the EMT?  I'd want to be able to take the speakers off easily each time that I set up, take down.

I don't have a good idea on attaching it to the screen, so hopefully someone will chime in with idea there, but I'm going to though another thought out to you which is free standing.  You could easily make a freestanding base out of PCV, EMT, or wood to be the height you want.  Whatever material you use make an X at the bottom and the stand comes up from the center.  Depending on how you feel about your speakers you can either attach the material directly to the bottom or make another X followed by 90 to create a bottom and sort of a open side for the speaker to sit in for easy removal.  Hopefully that all made sense.   This way you could move them around if you wanted to in the future or even use the stands for something else all together if you don't like them.  It's thought, I'm sure someone will chime in with an idea more on what you were looking for.

Get the appropriate size for the conduit.  Replace the nut with a wing nut for easy fastening.
Attach the speaker via bolt to the opposing side.  Simple.

Those would work but do you drill a hole in your speaker to attach a bolt to it?  My speakers don't have any attachment points at the moment.

If your speakers are of the pole mount type, you could attach something like this to the EMT using the hanger bracket previously shown:
