Where do i hook the input rca from the amp on the reciever

First things first; the audio feed from your receiver towards your amplifier, not reverse. Your Harman Kardon Signature 2.1 is a final amplifier. This means that you have to use either one pre-amplifier to provide audio signal to Sig. 2.1 or your receiver must have an audio volume control. Either of these cases is necessary in order to have the volume control and the input control of what will be reproduced. In case your receiver meets these requirements clarify me the model to provide you more details. By the way you can get an official user manual for Sig. 2.1 at this link.

In case of a problem or clarification or misunderstanding from my side, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

Need to know if we can hook a phantom powered microphone to our shs audio amplifier

Does your microphone have it's own built in phantom power? If it's just a regular mic, you should be able to connect into any MIC inputs on your Amplifier. Otherwise, you'll have to utilize a mic/line mixer to provide the phantom power your mic needs. Then you would connect your mixer to the amplifier.

Which SHS Audio amp do you have? The ones that I am familiar with do not have any MIC inputs.

I have a problem with my crate pa system. When I hook up everything and use my microphone the speaker distorts the sound and it is not a clean sound. I bought this system used and never hooked them up...

Hiya, check that there is not a problem with the mic by using another mic/cd source first and also if you have another speaker then try that, even a small one at low volume. Just establish that the fault is with the amp (or elsewhere first) for definite. If it is the amp, then it could be as simple as loose wires/dry joints, but there is a possibility that a couple of the outputs may be gone also. Distortion is unfortunately a problem that could lie anywhere in the amp and if it is the amp, you will need to find someone in area that can repair. Best of luck

Audio from laptop to yamaha amp (rx-v18oo)to sony lcd

you will need a 3.5mm TRS minijack to stereo RCA (red & white)lead.
Connect the headphone-out of the laptop to a line input on the reciever - one of the following inputs should work: CD, CD-R in, Tape in. Do not connect to the Phono input
set the output volume of your laptop about 50% to avoid distortion.
As for connecting the amp to the LCD, it really depends what inputs your screen has, but if you can- run HDMI.

Yamaha v-663 reciever

Most amps will only power two sets of speakers direcrly hooked to amp (A&B). If you want audio throughout the house, I would recommend a PA system set up with individual room volume controls

RE:simple hook up proceedures

Well first off u must be doing some nice recordings or live sound but anyway. On ur back panel those r called terminal strip connections. For hooking small mini wires. For every mic u have and want to hook up to the rack u will need Mini Barrier to XLR adapters and one for ur main output to ur mixer or amp.

Gemsound power speaker pxa105

Disconnect any input cables from the amp. Turn down the volume controls and disconnect the speakers. Power back on. If you still blow fuses with nothing hooked up, have the amp fixed.
If the fuse holds, shut down and connect the speakers, leaving the volume controls down. Power up and see if your fuse holds. If you have hum, an output transistor is most likely shorted. If you have no noise, SLOWLY turn up the volume controls and listen for the hum. If all is quiet, turn down the volume controls and connect your input cables and turn the volume back up. Noise? check your cables!
