I have a record player (it's a cd, cassette, radio and record player combo) with built in speakers. So it should have a amp right? I have it hooked up to external speakers (with rca cables) that have a pre-amp. On the back of the external speaker is a line/phono switch. When it's switched to line everything sounds good but the only thing is when playing a record it's high pitched? Lots of treble and no bass? I flip the external speaker switch to phono amd the volume is louder with bass and sounds good except for the massive amount of static. While in phono the static is the same even with radio and cd. The rca outpit in the back deffinitely says output.

It would have an amp for built in speakers, not necessarily for external speakers.

You may want to list some details about what you are using.
Stereo is a Crosley - Ridgemont Bluetooth Stereo Audio System - Model Number CR7010A-BK. Output is RCA and headphones

Speakers are Klipsch - "The Sixes" powered speakers some relevant details are:

1 x pair of RCA phono level inputs with switch for Phono/Line input versatility (Phono Pre-amp with ground screw terminal)

1 x 3.5mm mini jack line level

Going by what you have I suspect that stereo system is just low quality and the outputs have an issue. Try to test that line out with another speaker set and your speakers on another setup with the line in.
Read some of the lower reviews, they all talk about bad audio quality even using the outputs https://www.amazon.com/product-reviews//B0868YBBB3/ref=acr_dpx_hist_1?ie=UTF8&filterByStar=one_star&reviewerType=all_reviews#reviews-filter-bar 30% 3 star and under reviews with a good number of 1 stars, not a product to get.
The rca outputs on the stereo are line out so that is the setting that should be used on the speakers.
That cheap stereo is really not the best match for the speakers you have, it's like feeding a Ferrari generic 87 octane gas.

This would be a great replacement for playing records https://www.amazon.com/Audio-Technica-AT-LP60X-BK-Belt-Drive-Hi-Fidelity-Anti-Resonance/dp/B07N3XJ66N/ref=sr_1_1?ascsubtag=loudersound-us-2191137250327555800-20&dchild=1&keywords=Audio+Technica+AT-LP3&qid=1614785219&sr=8-1 Really nothing cheaper would be worth it for good audio.

Sweet! Thanks, any recommendation on a combo set (record, cd and radio) or is it best to keep them separate
