I am working on the last piece for my HT upgrade and would like some advice on placement.

Current setup: Pioneer VSX-1020, Samsung PN58c550, 3 Energy TAKE Sat speakers.

I have 3 Energy TAKE SAT speakers and a par of Energy CR10's. Currently, I only have the TAKE's hooked up, 1 in the center and a pair on the left and right.

Would the additional CR10's be best as rear surrounds or the front left and right in the 5.1 setup?

Thanks!

Keep the three identical speakers up front.

Sounds good!

Is the purpose to keep the sound from the front normalized?

Not sure what you mean by "normalized" ... the purpose is to keep the three front speakers timbre-matched. That way, you aren't noticing differences in the character of the sound as the action moves across the screen, or as sounds come from different parts of the front soundstage.
