Default Re: sub turning off on low volume, driving me insane

The power wire is spliced into the same 12 volt wire powering my aftermarket deck. The ground wire is wired to ground somewhere in the trunk. The "blue/white" power accessory wire of the harness (which I assume is the orange remote wire at the sub) is spliced to the power antenna wire of my deck. The weird thing is when I have my key at the ACC position, the sub is constantly/continuously on no matter what the volume is. Once I turn the key to the ON position, the sub usually shuts off if the volume isn't loud enough. For instance, after changing songs the sub shuts off, and it takes 3-5 seconds of music playing to trigger the sub to turn back on again. If I turn the car off and switch the key back to ACC, the sub goes on permanently again. This is all with that orange loop connected. If I remove it, the ACC position works as permanent on, but in the ON position the sub does not turn on at any volume level.

Anyone have any advice to offer? I think maybe the power antenna wire from my deck isn't what I was supposed to splice the blue/white wire into. Would it work if I spliced both the red power wire and the blue/white power accessory wire to the power wire for my deck? Any help would be appreciated.
Remove the remote turn-on loop. Connect the blue/white wire of the Tube to the constant power wire of the headunit or the switched +12v. Keep in mind, the blue/white wire is the connection that actually turns the Tube "on." Connecting the constant power and remote turn-on wire to the same source will not be a problem.
