I equalize vocals with the treble slightly up for men. It seems male voices need a little treble boost. I also take the mids down a notch.
For females or really high males, I take the mids up a notch, and lower the treble a bit. I bring the bass ranges up some as well. I usually pan a little left. I bring the lead guitars into the right side of the pan so they don't step on the vocals. Rythm can go left.
