Tricks for Getting Wide AND Present Synths?

Say you are working on a track with a lead synth sound. It's the featured instrument, playing the hook of the song. You want it to be big and wide and very present in the mix, like double-tracked guitars panned hard left-right. What are some ways of achieving this without completely relying on stereo send effects or
the stereo-ized "wet" settings on the synth itself? It seems like everything that widens it ends up pushing it further back as well. I'm basically trying to get big synth lines and still leave some room in the middle for vocals.
