Right now I am double tracking guitar with a clean amp and a distortion pedal. If I wanted to vary the tones to widen the stereo field should I get a second pedal and run both through the same amp or run one dist pedal through two different amps (I can't afford both).

To clarify I am going to use dist A for one track and dist B for another - the tones would vary by two different amps using the same pedal or two pedals through the same amp.

You widen the stereo field with panning, not with different tones.
Do you mean the frequency range?

No I don't think you really understand the process, no offense. You widen the stereo field even further by tonally separating the two left and right tracks.

I agree with Horlicks, but to answer your question, most people prefer to use two amps, although TBH you could get the same effect by simply changing the EQ settings on your pedal and/or amp.

EDIT: that generally doesn't do a whole lot to "widen the stereo field" it just makes the two sounds more distinct, I know what your talking about, but that's not the terminology I would use.
