The Orange Remote Wire of the Tube is connected to a switched +12v connection, meaning a +12v source that is turned on and off with the ignition. Most aftermarket headunits have a separate amplifier remote turn-on lead to connect this orange wire of the Tube to.
The Auto Turn On Loop is used when you do not have a switched +12v source to connect to. Again, just like the High Level and Low Level Inputs, this too is an either/or situation. It is one or the other, NOT both.
If you are still too confused after reading completely through the owner's manual, pay a professional installer to install the unit.
