Yes, (2) XTi6002's would be good.  Another option would be (4) XLS2500's, all bridged.

The best performance / highest cost would be (2) MAi9000's or iT9000HD's.

cheers kevin thanks verry much. a couple other thingsas well ,  would 4 xti 4002 be over powering them ?? the reason i ask is i have a couple mates running xti amps and they seem to have won me over in power and reliability, i think the big question is , is there much difference in qualty between the xls and xti

also the amps that are used in the jbl prx600 series, on the jbl site they say there tops and subs and tops run at 1000 wat each (PRX618S-XLF & PRX615M)
i understand  that these speakers would be spot on matched with the amps but  just having a little trouble compareing them to  other speakers,  say if we were using the same style of speakers in the mrx range could you tell me what amps would be a closest match to the amps in the prx's

I don't think an XTi4002 running bridged-mono into a 715 or 718 would be too much power.  Just don't go too far into clipping; don't let monkeys run your show so to speak.

As far as product positioning on the PRX and MRX, etc., honestly JBL Pro would be best to address this.  As far as which amps are closest to what is in the PRX, that would be the XLS Drivecore series.
