How to match gifted old speakers?

Audio novice here. Setting up a 5.1.2 system and have been gifted with 2 Boston Acoustic VS 260 and 1 Boston Acoustic VS 325C speakers which I plan on using front and obviously center. I have ordered 2 SVS Prime Elevation speakers for Atmos and was wondering how to match those Boston Acoustic speakers? Any recommendations?

Appreciate your assistance!

Bill

Match with surround speakers. From reading the forums I understand that if you don't have the same front speakers as surround, they should somehow match. Is that incorrect?

You were gifted with some really nice Boston VS speakers

For surrounds I would aim for the Boston A25 speakers ... buy 1 each and get the 2nd one for 1/2 off

Surrounds for movies/TV/games do not need to really match

Not necessary and as Ziegl pointed out, the now deceased Boston Acoustics brand has some excellent speakers still available to brand match which is nice but not "necessary."

I do like a brand/aesthetic/voice matched front three though.
