It sounds like the ventings (pad heights) could be set too low which will make the lower register stuffy and resistant,

The notes that tend to suffer the most if that is the case are the lower register C, C#, Eb, E and open G, so that covers the notes you're having trouble with. I see this a lot on both some new clarinets and also clarinets set up or overhauled by incompetents.
