 General sharpness

I have this problem of being sharper than most players. Usually, when I play, I would have to pull my 442 instrument with a 65mm barrel out around 2mm or right before I can see the cork just to be in tune after I warmed up. This problem is amplified when I play Eb clarinet (just picked it up so relatively new to the instrument). I would be over 40 cents sharp with the 42mm barrel all the way pushed in and would have to pull around 2-3mm to be in tune.

I don't really know what I'm doing wrong. I use softer reeds than usual and I developed a good habit of maintaining a firm embouchure while not biting. Could this be a problem with my tongue position?
