Too bright. Seriously, I wouldn't pair those speakers with the Panasonic receiver.
Some great wisdom was posted while ago in one of the forums. The advice was to buy all neutral sounding components. That way, you're not trying to compensate for the sound issues with one component by changing others.
I think you might want to reconsider your platform. How about something from Denon instead of the Panasonic? Or, even a used receiver. Something from H/K? Then, your options for speakers would really open up.
I have nothing against the Panasonic. Heck, I own the XR55. But, I also have a pair of speakers that were dull when paired with my H/K receiver or even my Elite receiver that I sold off. With the Panny, they sing.
[Edit]: If you want 2 good speakers that will sound great with the Panasonic, head to eBay as I suggested before. There's a pair of 2000.3 Infinity speakers there. I'm sure they'll end up selling for less than 1/3 the price of a new pair of RTi6 speakers - and still stomp them when it comes to sound quality. Additionally, there's a pair of RS-2 Infinities on eBay, too. Both of these speakers have 6.5" woofers.
