R35 GTR Diamond Audio System Gen5 (2009-14)

$1,825.00

This item is for a turn-key system designed for 2009-2014 R35 GT-Rs to upgrade from the factory Bose subwoofers. This is a direct plug and play replacement with no wires needing to be cut or holes drilled. This particular system is equipped with the newly acquired Diamond Audio DES82 subwoofers that produce an accurate and very punchy sound. Thanks to the woven paper fiber reinforced cones and eight screw basket, these subwoofers seal extremely well to the enclosure and have minimal cone flex. This results in a pure and and undistorted sound even at the highest of volumes. The Diamond Audio system is a potent option that offers fantastic value for those looking to significantly improve the bass and add some carbon fiber to their GTRs. 

Housing the subwoofers is the highly regarded Gen5 twin 8 curved subwoofer enclosure. The enclosure is built from 5/8″ MDF material for structural rigidity and sound quality. Enclosures are designed with a thicker face to recess the subwoofers and prevent baffle flex while incorporating internal corner bracing to reduce air turbulence. Internal airspace is further expanded using a calculated area of BlackHole stuffing. Threaded inserts are built into each enclosure on the sides and rear for using bolts for mounting and attaching accessories as opposed to screws. Enclosures are finished with gold hardware, gold terminals, and a 1/4″ layer of high density foam with upholstery that is nearly identical to the factory GTR interior. A rear centre console cover and rear deck cover is included to carry the OEM stitching from the front arm rest, through the rear console, and onto the subwoofer enclosure.

In terms of the power supply, the amplifier, processor and all connections are completed and neatly assembled on a 3M carbon wrapped amplifier rack. The wiring extends through a factory hole and connects directly to the factory Bose subwoofer plug for a true plug and play experience. The amp rack bolts to the back of the box using an in-house CNC manufactured stacked fabrication mounting plate. Threaded T-nuts are used for a nut and bolt type assembly. The mounting plate is reinforced with dowels to ensure structural rigidity even in the most powerful or track oriented GTRs. 

Everything you need for the install is included, with the exception of tools. The install time takes approximately two hours depending on your install ability. This is a plug and play style install. All bolts match up to factory bolt locations, no wire cutting is required, no holes need to be drilled, and the front seats do not need to be removed. The amplifier will be sent pre-tuned to sound great as soon as it is installed. Tools required for the install are a flat screwdriver, 10mm socket, 14mm deep socket or wrench, and 4mm Allen key. This kit includes:

  • Xtreme Audio twin 8″ sealed Gen5 Curved subwoofer enclosure
  • 2 Diamond Audio DES82 subwoofers
