Stereo Expansion

What exactly does the stereo expansion effect do? How much should it be used in general?

depends on what you are using to generate it. each plugin or technique does it a bit differently with different results. Some use phase, some use level, some use phase and frequency etc... The goal when using something like this is to spread the stereo width wider without destroying the image. If it's needed, usually a little is good, a lot it bad. A lot of stereo enhancers will tend to collapse the middle.
