An 8 ohm driver nearly always has dc resistance ~ 5.6R.
If the bass driver the speaker should be 8 ohms nominal.
(Unless the designer is a muppet ....)
The fact that 8 ohms impedance is not 8 ohms resistance is sort
of ignored to an extent for amplifier ratings. However it would
not make sense to build an amplifier that offered bridging but
it could not drive 8 ohm speakers, too many would blow up.
In fact it might not blow up bridged into 4 ohms with conservative
protection, it just would not produce a lot more power. Without
the protection details it is handwaving to a degree, but for most
japanese stuff you woud expect it to survive in some manner.
