    So as I understand with a typical situation the diazonium salt is just the "NH2" from the aminobenzene getting replaced with "N=N" (triple bond) and then Cl- on the end or whatever.

    But what happens when it's diaminobenzene? Do you get a surplus Cl- or does it still go into the structure somehow? And how would it be shown in the name?

    If it's diaminobenzene you would probably get a double diazonium ion formed ...

    If you think about the N in between the benzene and the other N, how many bonds will it have? How many outer e-? It must have a negative charge! Which would form an ionic bond to the Cl-;.
