Just to clarify things, you own a pair of JBL STX 818 and another pair of JBL VRX 932?
If that's the case then you have great speakers but I'm not sure they play nice with each other, the VRX are line array type of speakers, which means that you need a minimum of three pairs for them to function as such. Do you have more gear? What kind of console do you have?

Connecting the amps to your speakers is fairly simple, just get high gauge speaker wires (12 or 10 gauge), good quality signal cables (XLR) to connect the mixing console to the amps and you're set. It's all in the manual and there's lots of good info so dig into it...

One itech 9000 can handle two sets of VRX 932 or up to four STX 818. It will not squeeze every last dB of them but it will do the job.

One more thing you need to do is connect the amps to a computer loaded with System Architect (a free download from Harman pro) via the ethernet plug on the back of the amp and load the amps with the proper presets for your speakers.

Also you need to learn about gain structure, plenty of YouTube tutorials about it such as this one:

That's great news. Use the EQ smartly, try not to boost anything, just cut where it's needed :)
