Getting water flow correct is probably the most difficult part of setting up a reef tank. 3 different powerheads would give you quite a bit of different flow options so I would shoot for:

1 of these
Hydor Koralia Evolution Pump - 600

and 2 of these
Hydor Koralia Nano Pump - 425


Positioning them will be 100% dependent on your scape so you will have to play around with it for a few weeks to get it right. I would position one angled upwards creating surface agitation and the other two can be angled in different directions.

I would go with a Hydor Koralia Evolution Pump - 850 and two 600s, but I like current because the more things move the less they settle in the wrong place.

That's 60x the tank volume... that's getting excessive

One Jebao WP-25 would be enough if not too much.
