I've tested it as much as I know how, but can't make the slider any wider than the container in which it sits.
That said, it's possible to narrow down the other parts of your site using CSS by increasing padding, margins or changing the percentage of width (for the individual sections).
So, let's say you have a 1000px wide layout. You could apply a slider in Page Templates, at 100%. Your header could be made 94%, along with the content area below the slider. That would let someone see the slider in a way similar to the one you've used as an example. You just have to be very careful when selecting the exact CSS elements to modify.
Also consider that if using padding (possibly margins, too), the background of that are may stretch to match the width of the slider. You may have to adjust the way you create your background colors and images.Go to the full post
