DIYSG Alchemy ohm load?

I tested the ohm load of my alchemy center and towers. The center measures 6.1ohms, the towers 3.1ohms.

Why would the towers test differently?

They both have the same CD and pair of 16ohm woofers. The crossovers are different but would the crossover even effect ohms? The towers also have reverse polarity on the CD. Would that cause a lower reading? I did test the woofers alone and got 9.6.

They all work just fine so i don't believe I messed up the XO.
