If price were equal for all three, ES30 is best.
Overall, n24 is the worst of the lot. 4" woofer can't match 6".
Likely, E30 is the best deal, as they should be cheaper than the ES30. ES30 is essentially the same speaker updated with a UHF driver that some people like and some do not (personally I don't care for it). So if the E30's are cheaper I would take them.
E25 or any other two-way JBL center is not worth buying. S center 1 & 2, EC35, P35, LC2 are the JBL centers to use.
E30's are solid bookshelfs but JBL makes much better. You generally want to try and stick with 1" pure titanium tweeter models from JBL. L series, S series, SII series, Studio series, etc.
