Michigan’s Kellogg Arena Upgrades With ISP Technologies

Battle Creek, Michigan’s 6,500-seat Kellogg Arena has played host to events from BMX to national acts, such as Kelly Clarkston and homegrown artist Kid Rock, since 1982.

Director of operations at Kellogg Arena, Ben Randels, contacted Kerry Johnson, president/CEO of BC Sound who had supplemented the arena’s system for years with ISP Technologies gear.

ISP became a mainstay of BC Sound in 2002, and had been used for their various live sound concerts, festivals, air shows and installation work. In choosing a new system for Kellogg Arena, Johnson says, “We generally like to use the same brands ourselves for live productions as we use for installation, especially ISP. [They are a] great local company right here in Michigan, Made in the USA.” 

BC Sound install manager, Adam Kane, replaced the existing center-hung cluster with 16 High Definition Line 3112 array boxes in 4 hangs, two XMAX 218 flown subwoofers producing, and the newly designed CXi114 coaxial loudspeaker for downfill.

Kane says, “I’m always pleasantly surprised at how little tweaking ISP gear needs beyond the manufacturer DSP presets, and this system was no exception. The coverage was exactly what we needed.” All ISP Technologies cabinets have patented and patent pending amplifier technology and are designed and manufactured in Michigan.”

Randals adds, “The new ISP system installed by BC Sound is an incredible improvement to the building. Returning clients and patrons are shocked by the difference. The coverage, clarity, and bass depth are going to be a huge asset to the building and upcoming events.”
