Attaching register to new ceiling tile


I'm taking out a circular air register in my drop-tile ceiling downstairs and am looking for a good way to attach it (pic attached) to the tile (pic attached) instead of just screwing it into the tile itself. The new register is a little bigger and therefore heavier so something a little more sturdy/durable (as far as supporting the register) would be preferred.
Any suggestions?
Thanks
PS...pic of duct run and end is attached.

Cut 2 pieces of 1x4 the width of the tile---install tile---lay the wood on top--hold in place and screw in the register---add foil tape of needed to ensure a good seal--done---
