Calsonic Arena is lighted by a combination of metal halide high intensity discharge lamps and conventional incandescent lamps. All lights are independently controlled by a remote controller unit which allows for a significant amount of versatility. In addition, the lights over the main arena floor have the capability of being dimmed to 10% brilliance with instant restart to 100% brilliance. This is an unusual feature for this type of lighting, which allows the lights to be dimmed and immediately brought up to full lighting.

The arena is equipped with four spotlight towers located high above the arena floor, two of which contain high intensity spotlights.
