you cant. the RCA input is a line level signal for the sub-woofer input. connecting a speaker level signal to that RCA input would probably damage the phonograph and the sub-woofer.

If your Crosley had a built in speaker you can use a speaker to line level adaptor and connect it to the sub. You will have to get the the speaker terminals to connect it.
