yes there is a fatory amp under the steering wheel dash
Yes, but I made that comment in reply to DGO who said that the base model doesn't have an amp. So, unless there is an option to add a better sound system to the base model, we can be certian you don't have a base model 300. As I said above, I have a 2012 base model and there is no amp under the dash above the driver's feet. I've been in there. No amp is present. The wiring harness is not there to add one, either. I bought the lowest power amp from another 300 owner here, thinking I could just plug it in and get a factory amp upgrade that way. Nope! No harness.

Now that said, the LC7i is a line output converter. So, in principle, I could add one to my base model if I knew how to interrupt the speaker wires. Then I could add another amp. Since you told us you already have a factory amp, if you interrupt the signal this way, there may be an issue controlling the tone and balance. I don't know this since I don't have a factory amp. But I think I read that people who have used this lose the factory controls.
