4 Wires Per Door Speaker?

Car is a 2000 Integra LS with no special upgraded packages from the factory. While replacing the speakers in the doors (both drivers and tweeters), I noticed something odd about how the drivers (6.5"?) were wired up - they have 4 speaker wires going into their wiring harness plug.

I would have expected to see only 2 wires going into the speaker, and after wiring up the replacements with the same 4 wires, I get good sound, so it doesn't negatively affect the performance to have 4. I was just wondering the reasoning/behavior behind the decision to wire the door drivers like this at build time.

I know that all the speakers are not wired this way, as I have replaced the tweeters and they only have 2 wires like I would expect,.

I have not replaced the rear speakers in the side panels behind the seats yet, but if/when I do, does anyone know if they are similarly wired?

So what I am seeing is just the manifestation of the factory's parallel wiring setup for the door drivers and tweeters to share the front channels it sounds like. Okay, that's good enough for me. Thanks!
