DM Solar panels - how do I mount them?

I have seen these 158W panels at $268+$120 freight for a two pack at Amazon.com: DM 158w Monocrystalline Solar Panel (2 Pack): Patio, Lawn & Garden

Can you please help with these questions:

1) Can I mount two of these panels on a single 1" tube that I will run across and above the top of the bimini?

2) What fittings do I need to mount each of the 2 panels to the 1" tube that runs across and above the top of the bimini? Do I need something like the "Cross Kits" used with the Kyocera panels?

Thanks
C

Now I know that the answer to 1) is "no", I will need to add another tube.

Any experts who can tell me what fittings can I use to mount these DM panels to a pair of 1" tubes running across the boat at whatever distance is required? Same "cross kit" as for the Kyocera panels?
