What is this mixing/eng. technique used at this Rage Against The Machine Song?

What is the mixing-recording technique used at MIC CHECK from RAGE AGAINST THE MACINE-THE BATTLE OF LOS ANGELES after 2:28

Vocals sound centered and narrow at first and right at the next line they are widespread. Then back narrow again etc.

How is this effect achieved?

its just adding a slight delay to one channel to make it seem more "stereo"
this is usually called "spread"

what do you mean on one channel? On the left or the right one only?

It is very interesting how the voice sounds much wider. Gives a kind of 3D effect.

well the first part, the narrow part, was probably sung into a mono mic, and the wider part was probably sung into a stereo mic.

but yes, its always nice to see people playing with stereo imaging as there's very few dimensions to audio, and stereo effects are the strongest(next to dynamic range)

Mix processing can achieve this easily, no different mics are used usually.
