There really is no answer to your question. However, that speaker is VERY sensitive, so a couple points...
1. You won't need a ton of power, some most any AV Rec will give you enough power to man the fronts.
2. You may want to get additional speakers that have at least low 90s sensitivity, or it may be very hard for your AVR to EQ and give all the speakers enough volume. JBL530s?
3. You will want to have three indentical across the front...unless I am missing a matching horizontal center.
4. You will want a powerful sub that puts out some output to keep up with these speakers. SVS, Rythmics, PSA, Reastion Audio or HSU, but nothing 10 inch or low end.

Set up #1: EMP e5ti, e5Ci, and SLS Q line Audio surrounds, EMP 10i10i sub
Set up #2: Def Tech SM450, CLR2002, SLS Qline surrounds and Klipsch 12wD sub
Set up #3: JBL130, JBL120C and Klipsch synergy sub

Curious, why does he need the front 3 to match?

You should match front three, as pans across the front would sound different, if you have totally different speakers from different brands

I've kept the front three the same.

Krell Evolution 900e x 7

Bose Jewel speakers.

 

Jealous of my speakers?

One article to help answer that question. Matching fronts help present a seamless soundstage which is important for HT and multi-channel audio. Many feel strongly about matching all of your surrounds - but depending on the room, speakers you have up front, that isn't always possible.
