i have a Shure GLXD4 wireless mic for my saxophone and the Shure manual says to use phantom power. How do I set phantom power to only one input or is that not necessary. In addition, i have tried the mic with phantom on and off and really can’t find a difference. What should I gain from the phantom power option. Thanks!

If you are using that with the Shure wireless body pack that give the mic the 5v Phantom power it needs. If using it wired direct you will need the Shure adapter to covert phantom power from the wired source to the voltage the mic needs. I guess from your comments you are using the body pack else the mic won’t work.
I'm looking at the manual for the Shure GLXD4 receiver and it says it has Phantom Power PROTECTION -- that means that if you plug it into a channel that has phantom power turned on there will be no damage to the GLXD4 receiver. It does not mean that phantom power is required for operation.
As David already said, the MICROPHONE requires phantom power that's apparently provided by the transmitter pack.
I was looking at the manual for the RECEIVER that is plugged into the input channel of the PA system. No phantom needed but phantom won't hurt the receiver if it's on.
